Chicago Blackhawks Make Franchise History That Was Last Seen 30-Years ago

Connor Bedard has been on the sidelines for a few weeks now due to jaw surgery, and his absence is taking a toll on the Chicago Blackhawks, who find themselves at a historic low.

Over the weekend, the Blackhawks faced the Flames in Calgary, suffering a 1-0 loss, marking their 20th consecutive road defeat. Yes, you read that right – the Blackhawks haven't clinched a road victory since November 9th in Tampa Bay.

Forward MacKenzie Entwistle expressed his thoughts on the challenging situation:
"When you put it that way, all the way back to Tampa, that's a long time ago. The most frustrating part is we're in these games and we just can't find a way to finish and get the job done."

Despite numerous opportunities to break the streak, they consistently fell short. Adding to the concern is the alarming statistic that they've been outscored 86-29 in these 20 games.

It's a rarity to witness such a prolonged struggle in the modern NHL, and the Blackhawks have etched themselves into the record books as the first team in 30 years to endure 20 consecutive losses on the road.

The Blackhawks' next away game is slated for February 19th in Carolina. Should they face another loss, they'll have to wait until March for another shot. Fortunately, the team is set to play most of their games at home this month.
