The Hawks have fallen from first to third place in the Central Division while losing five of their last eight games. They were edged 3-2 in a shootout on Wednesday in St. Louis and then allowed the first four goals en route to a 5-2 loss to the Stars on Friday. That loss to Dallas dropped Chicago three points behind both the Stars and the Blues in the division.
