The 1994–95Chicago Blackhawks season was the Hawks' 69thseason. The Hawks ended the regular season on a high note, winning their final five games. They tied the Detroit Red Wings for most power play goals (52) and had the best power play in the league (24.76%). They also allowed the fewest goals during the regular season (115). It was an inconsistent season for the team, as they had three 5-game winning streaks (February 1 to 9; March 16 to 26; and April 25 to May 3) and one 13-game winless streak from March 29 to April 23. Within their winless streak, they lost 8 games in a row. Points-leader Bernie Nicholls had 3 hat tricks, including two four-goal games (the first one came on February 5 and the second one came on February 28). Nicholls' three-goal game came on March 21 in a 7-3 Blackhawks' win at San Jose.
In the playoffs, they defeated the Maple Leafs in a tight seven-game series, swept the Vancouver Canucks, and then lost to the Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference Finals in five games; three of those games went into overtime (Detroit won all three).
The Blackhawks were one of only three teams in 1994–95 to have a better regular-season record on the road then at home (the other two teams were the Florida Panthers and the Los Angeles Kings).
