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...

The Blackhawks are coming off of a 7-1 drubbing of the Detroit Red Wings. The strength of the minor league system was on full display. Jeremy Morin and Brandon Saad made key contributions in yesterday’s win.
The Predators are led by defensemen Shea Weber, Roman Josi and forward Martin Erat. The Blackhawks continue to get strong play from Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Saad.

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...
The Chicago Blackhawks fell to the Anaheim Ducks for the third time this season, giving the Ducks the series sweep with a 2-1 victory in the United Center. The win comes as sweet relief for the hungry Ducks, who were 0-4 since their last bout with the Hawks, including a 4-0 shutout loss to the San Jose Sharks. Chicago briefly regained their 5 point lead in the Western Conference, only to have the Ducks within striking distance again after tonight's loss. RECAP: The first period ended with the two teams scoreless and tied with 9 SOGs a piece. Corey Perry was the first to put a point on the board for the Ducks to liven u...
The Chicago Blackhawks ended their two game losing streak by shutting out the Calgary Flames last night 2-0. Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook each scored for the Blackhawks.
An added storyline to last night’s game was the trade speculation surrounding Flames Right Winger Jarome Iginla. Recently, Iginla submitted a list of four teams he would not block a trade to. The Blackhawks are on that list. Even though Iginla’s numbers are down, he can add veteran leadership to any of teams he is traded to.
Blackhawks netminder Ray Emery continued his strong play against the Flames by making 16 stops. Emery's personal win streak now stands...
There is no better time to be thankful that all the armchair GMs aren't real GMs than directly after a tough loss right before the trade deadline.
Monday night on Twitter, as the Blackhawks walked out of a lackluster game with a 5-4 loss to the LA Kings, whom they had previously dominated earlier in the season, all the usual suggestions came out. So-and-so should go back to Rockford. So-and-so is dead weight this season and should be traded. (If he's such dead weight, who else is going to want him?) So-and-so isn't getting it done. In exchange, fans are looking for every high-profile player out there, future salary concerns be ignored.
The Flames head back on the road tonight, a place they have not been too fond of as of late, currently riding a 9-game win-less streak (0-8-1). Breaking the streak will not come easy heading into Chicago to face the league’s best team. The Blackhawks will finish off rare back-to-back home games after losing last night, 5-4 to the defending champs Los Angeles Kings.
