Blackhawks Bid for Eighth-Straight Win

Kane Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks will look to continue their hot play as they bid for their eighth-consecutive victory when they host the Nashville Predators Tuesday evening. The seven game win streak has the Blackhawks just four points behind the Dallas Stars in both the Central Division and Western Conference standings.

Shark Bites
  • The Blackhawks are 5-0 SU in their last five games with one day off.
  • The Predators are 0-5 in their last five games against the Western Conference.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Predators’ last nine games against the Blackhawks.

Patrick Kane, the NHL’s leading scorer with 62 points (25 goals, 37 assists), is a threat to record a big stat line no matter who the Hawks matchup with, but the sniper has especially enjoyed seeing the Predators at the other end of the ice. In his eight-year career, Kane has tallied more goals versus the Preds (19) than any other team in the league. In two contests versus Nashville this season, the winger has registered a pair of goals.

Furthermore, Chicago has not been a friendly city to the Preds in recent meetings. The Predators have lost each of their last six visits to the United Center, including a 4-1 defeat back on December 8.

Though nothing is official, it’s likely that we could see Pekka Rinne and Corey Crawford start between the pipes for the Preds and Blackhawks respectively. The Predators have not played a game since losing to the Arizona Coyotes 4-0 on Saturday, and the Blackhawks head in off a 6-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche Sunday.
