The playoffs are just around the corner and the Chicago Blackhawks have only seven games left in the regular season.
The Blackhawks will have to win three or four games in order to clinch a playoff spot, a challenge that doesn't look to be as hard as it once did earlier in the season.
In the remaining eight games the Blackhawks will matchup against five playoff bound teams. Only the Minnesota Wild will fail to qualify for the playoffs.
The Blackhawks will have to show that they are ready for the playoffs, with or without Jonathan Toews.
These are the four most important games left in the season.
