The Blackhawks play the Nashville Predators for the final time this season tonight at 7:00pm. Thank God.
The Blackhawks can clinch a playoff spot tonight by winning this game or losing in OT/shootout. All they need is a point. If they lose tonight in regulation, then they can still clinch with a Kings loss (regulation or OT/shootout), a Coyotes regulation loss, or a Stars regulation loss. (@tylerc1)
Corey Crawford will be in net for the Blackhawks. (@TramyersCSN) The bane of my existence, Pekka Rinne, will be starting for the Predators. (@JoshuaCooper)
Jonathan Toews has been cleared for contact. (SB Nation) He could play in one or two games before the end of the regular season. This is not a drill! (CSN Chicago)
In prospects news, Phillip Danault has joined the Rockford IceHogs, while goaltender Kent Simpson signed an amateur tryout agreement with the ‘Hogs. (Chicago Blackhawks)
