Hawks Can Decide Their Own Fate

By the time Dallas takes the ice tomorrow night, they’ll know whether or not they have a chance at making the playoffs in the West. That is because the Hawks play Detroit just after noon and a single point earned by them will clinch them a playoff spot. If Chicago loses in regulation to the Wings, Dallas is in a must win situation against the Wild.

Since we know the four Eastern playoff matchups, here is what could happen in the West depending on these two teams tomorrow.

If Chicago wins:
LA @ Van
Phx @ SJ
Nas @ Det
Chi @ Ana

If Chicago loses in OT:
LA @ Van
Chi @ SJ
Phx @ Det
Nas @ Ana

If Chicago loses and Dallas wins:
Dal @ Van
Phx @ Det
Nas @ Ana
