The Blackhawks split from the Carolina Hurricanes midweek and are in a tight battle for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Central Division. They have a chance to beat the hated Predators Saturday when they travel to Bridgestone Arena. Nashville is currently in fourth place in the Central with a regulation win, the two teams with the most points. Needless to say, Saturday’s game is an important test for the Blackhawks, who have yet to beat the Predators this season.
