Morning jam: Hawks looking for pardon

The Blackhawks clinched the Presidents’ Trophy by defeating the Edmonton Oilers, but that’s not necessarily a precursor to postseason success. Since 2003, only one Presidents’ Trophy winner has won the Stanley Cup (2008 Red Wings), and only two teams reached the Stanley Cup finals (2008 Red Wings and 2011 Canucks).

Blackhawks 4, Oilers 1

* Blackhawks: Clinched Presidents' Trophy (most points) for first time since 1990-91 season

* Patrick Kane (CHI): goal, 2 assists (4 goals, 3 assists in 3 games vs. Oilers this season)

* Blackhawks: 7-1 this season when both Kane and Jonathan Toews score a goal

* Blackhawks: 5-1-0 in past 6 road games
