The Blackhawks and Predators headline a very nice NHL slate for Thursday as the two teams meet inside Bridgestone Arena.
Chicago and Nashville are in the midst of a home and home series that saw the Blackhawks grab a 4-1 win over the Preds on Tuesday.
Chicago currently sits in 3rd of the Central division, while the Preds hold down the 5th spot.
The Blackhawks got a very impressive win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday in 4-1 fashion and saw Patrick Kane extend his point streak to 23.
Kane found the empty net to solidify the 4th goal and put the game away. Kane’s goal marked the 600th point for him in his career.
G Corey Crawford had 26 saves in Tuesday’s win over the Preds, but has some very bad memories from the last time he visited Nashville.
Crawford allowed 6 goals in Game 2 of the NHL First Round last season as Nashville had everything clicking that night. Look for Crawford to offer a bit of revenge here as backup Scott Darling was put in place for the remainder of the series.
Chicago brings in a record of 5-6-3-0 on the road this season.
The Predators are struggling as of late and G Pekka Rinne can get a lot of that blame.
Rinne has gone 1-5-2 over his last 8 games and comes in off the loss to Chicago where he let up 3 goals and had just 20 saves. With his struggles, the Predators have won just 3 of their last 11 games and have slipped in the standings.
Captain Shea Weber tried to stir the pot up a bit after the sluggish 4-1 loss to Chicago as he said the team was not consistent and not good enough right now. Weber has 9 goals and 9 assists on the season.
Nashville has been one of the better home teams in the NHL this season. The Preds bring in a record of 8-3-1-1 inside Bridgestone Arena this season. They’ve scored 3.00 goals per home game this season.

The Predators have been a mess lately. They aren’t scoring and are conceding early and often.
Shea Weber’s words had to hit the rest of the team hard and should be able to get them up for this game.
