Five takeaways from Blackhawks' 4-2 loss to Canucks: Losing ground in playoff race

Five takeaways from Blackhawks' 4-2 loss to Canucks: Losing ground in playoff race

If there was an area the Blackhawks could exploit against Vancouver, it was the power play. The Canucks entered the game ranked 25th in penalty kill percentage (77.6), and had allowed one power-play goal in three straight games. The Blackhawks were awarded four power plays in this one, three of which came in the first 25 minutes of the game, and couldn't capitalize. You could argue the first one should've been a penalty shot after Jonathan Toews drew a slashing penalty, but they had six scoring chances on their four power play attempts and failed to find the back of the net on each of them.
