At this point I'd rather be a surging underdog than a top-team-on-decline. But we're #2 and not #1 and we're certainly not a "force to be reckoned with" team like the Blackhawks sans defense injuries.
That's the thing, a division winner can't really qualify as flying "under the radar." When you're leading your division despite playing badly, the reason that others don't consider you a cup contender is more likely attributable to underperforming.
