Blackhawks clinch playoff berth with 5-3 win over Predators

Chicago had shut out Nashville on home ice on Saturday; the Predators came to the United Center on Sunday hoping to return the favor.

The Blackhawks took Sunday's game 5-3 in regulation, and in doing so, also clinched the first berth in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs. They continue to lead the league with 62 points.

Sunday's match was a low-penalty game; both teams are well aware of the other's ability to seize on mistakes and make opponents pay. The Predators took a too-many-men penalty in the first with a bad line change; and Andrew Shaw collected an unsportsmanlike conduct in the second.

The story of the night was the strong play of Chicago&#...

Blackhawks visit Predators in front half of home-and-home

The league leading Chicago Blackhawks (27-5-4) visit their Central Division rival Nashville Predators (15-15-8) in the front end of a home and home series today at 2pm CST.

Nashville, winners in just one of their previous five, are four points out of the

final playoff spot in the West with just ten games remaining and will likely end the season on the outside looking in. While four points in ten games is certainly not an insurmountable deficit, the shortened season's intraconference schedule makes it extremely probable that the Predators will only be playing spoiler down the stretch this year.

Blackhawks claim 3-2 shootout win over Predators

The Blackhawks earned a win in the shootout Monday, and in the process, gave a point to Nashville. The Predators now sit just two points out of a playoff berth with 12 games remaining in their regular season schedule - three more of which will be against Chicago.

During the first and second periods, Chicago dominated most of the play, outshooting Nashville 27-11.

It was reflected on the score sheet as well. Brandon Saad put in the Blackhawks on the board with just 12 seconds left in the first period. Patrick Kane made it 2-0 with 7:50 left in the second.

In the third, however, the Blackhawks did what they've done a few too many times lately: instead of putt...

Blackhawks roll over Red Wings in Easter morning showcase

The anticipation was high for Sunday's Blackhawks-Red Wings game; after all, their last match up had been a thrilling 2-1 Chicago shootout victory to start the month off.

Today's game lacked the same tension, as Chicago roared out to a 3-0 lead in just over four minutes. Detroit barely looked like they were playing on the same sheet of ice for most of the game.

Jeremy Morin, freshly called up from the AHL, scored his first NHL goal of the season on his first shot on his first shift. Brandon Saad scored again less than a minute later.

Detroit's Jakub Kindl intercepted a Dave Bolland pass soon after that, but Jimmy Hayes, crashing the net, create...

11:30am CST

 

The Western Conference leading Chicago Blackhawks (25-5-3) face off against their division rival Detroit Red Wings (17-12-5) in their final visit to Joe Louis Arena during the 2013 regular season.

The Blackhawks have struggled as of late, suffering five regulation losses in their previous nine games. Across those five losses, Chicago has averaged less than three goals per game, and things won't be any easier today against a Detroit team that has yielded just six goals over their previous four contests.

With Ray Emery (12-1-0) suffering his first loss of the season against Anaheim on Friday, it will be Corey Cr...
