Last night the two worst teams in the NHL faced off, the Chicago Blackhawks and the San Jose Sharks. During the game which had little star power, things got a bit chippy after Sharks defenseman Calen Addison took a run at Connor Bedard.

This resulted in veteran teammate Tyler Johnson coming to the defense of Bedard by spearing Addison so that he would get off of Bedard's back.

The Blackhawks eventually took home a 5-2 victory over the Sharks. After going down 2-0 in the first period, they rallied on the backs of goals from Philipp Kurashev, Ryan Donato, Kevin Korchinski, Joey Anderson, and Connor Bedard.

They now have a four-point lead over the Sharks for last place in the NHL and both teams will have high odds of winning the first overall pick in the upcoming 2024 draft.
