Right now, the Chicago Blackhawks are on an epic slide going 0-7-1 in their last eight games. This stumble began with a back-to-back matchup against the Predators where Nashville won both games and has loomed large over the Blackhawks going into tonight.
Nashville has been mediocre since the All-Star break with a 2-2-2 record. Rinne has been uncharacteristically letting in a few more goals than the norm, but the defense has not been clearing the lanes and crease as they did in the month of January.
Coming down the stretch, these type of games are very important…for Chicago, it will be trying to get back to their winning ways….for Nashville, it’ll be trying to achieve the success they relished in January. If you can get tickets to what should be a sold-out Bridgestone Arena, bring your sweetheart out for a fun-filled evening and hopefully a Predators win…Game time is 7 P.M. Central.
This Year’s Series: 2-0-1 Home (1-0-0) Away (1-0-1)

The free-falling Chicago Blackhawks are in need of a goaltender, and they can afford to trade All-Star Patrick Kane to get one, former Hawk and current NBC analyst Jeremy Roenick said Wednesday.
The Chicago Blackhawks didn't look like a team ready to break out of their longest slump in four years the last time they hit the ice. Doing so against the Nashville Predators may prove difficult as well.
Ryan Ellis scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and added an assist and the Nashville Predators beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 3-2, on Tuesday. Ryan Suter and Nick Spaling also scored for the Predators. Bryan Bickell and former Red Wing Marian Hossa scored for the slumping Blackhawks, who are 2-8-1 in their past 11 games.
