'Hawks On The Brink Of Elimination'

After winning the Stanley Cup last year and starting this season in top form, the Blackhawks seemed poised to advance deep into the playoffs. But now, the Hawks find themselves in a precarious spot. If they lose Monday night in Game 7 against the St. Louis Blues, they’ll be eliminated in the first round and lose the chance to defend their title. 

WBEZ sports contributor Cheryl Raye-Stout joins us with a preview of Monday’s match-up and a conversation about what’s at stake for Toews, Kane and the rest of the squad.
