Pre-Gamin’: Blackhawks vs Predators (7:30 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread, More

Chicago Blackhawks

We’re going old school tonight, kids. The Blackhawks are wearing white at home. Love to see it. Heck, I wish they had done it when they celebrated 1,000 games together for Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane instead of the Reverse Retros. Let’s see if it can create some energy for the squad.

With Alex Stalock activated, the only player on IR at this point is Jarred Tinordi.

Nashville Predators

Mark Borowiecki is on IR.

What to Watch For

  • Nashville’s only 4-4-2 on their last 10. They’re ripe for a loss. And the Blackhawks are wearing white…
  • The Blackhawks are dead last in the NHL in scoring (2.27 per game). Nashville ranks 30th in the league (2.47). So maybe bet the under tonight?
  • The Blackhawks are still the best faceoff team in the league (56.8 percent). Nashville ranks 7th in the league (53.0).
  • Nashville has only scored three power play goals in the month of December.
