The Trio of Games Could Have a Big Impact on the NHL – NBC Chicago Playoff Picture | Instant News

With only 11 games remaining in the regular season, the Chicago Blackhawks find themselves with excellent odds this week, as they will face Predators Nashville in a three-game series against one of their biggest rivals for a Central Division playoff place.

The Blackhawks are currently trailing the Predators by just two points for that final spot, and they also have a game in hand for their opponents.

Here’s an update on the Central Division playoff picture heading home this season.


While the top three teams in the division are locked in a tight battle for top spot, the battle for fourth place involves three teams, including the Blackhawks.

Here is where things head into Monday’s action:

4 Nashville 49 points

5 Chicago 47 points

6 Dallas 46 points

The Blackhawks have a game in hand at the Predators, with Nashville only 10 games remaining in their season. The Stars have three games in hand in Nashville, with 13 games remaining.


The Blackhawks take on Nashville in the first of three straight matches on Monday, heading to the Bridgestone Arena for the last time this season.

After Monday’s game, the Blackhawks and Predators will then head to Chicago, with two more matches set for Wednesday and Friday nights.

The Blackhawks have two more games against Stars on May 9 and 10 to end the regular season.

As for Dallas, they will kick off a four-game tie against the Detroit Red Wings on Monday. They have one game left against the Predators, set for May 1, and then the final two against the Blackhawks.


The Blackhawks are less than happy to have faced the Predators so far this season, losing all five of their games against Nashville and gaining only two of a possible 10 points.

If the Blackhawks can win two out of three games, they are potentially the same as Nashville who are out of the draw, and still have a game in hand after the draw’s end on Friday.

Anything less than that will leave the Blackhawks a little tied up, as they still have a total of six games remaining against Tampa Bay, Florida and Carolina, the top three teams in the Central Division.

Heading into a stretch that calls for extra points will be an uphill task for the Blackhawks, who have been trying to find more consistent form in recent weeks.

Nashville, Tenn. (WKRN) — in just 14 days, the Nashville Predators-Edmonton will make their temporary home for what they hope will be until the beginning of October, when the Stanley Cup finals to conclude.

But this is no ordinary trip during the regular season, or even in the playoffs. NHL team don’t know how long they will be in a bubble, and it is definitely leaving some players like raptors forward Colton Sissons, a little awkward.

“That’s a good question. I had some concern about the packaging already, honestly. I’m going to pack a lot of sweats and comfortable clothes,” he said Sissons.

Strict protocols in place in Canada, the players plan to spend a lot of time in their rooms when not on the ice. Forward Kyle Turris said he’s not planning on packing too many things, but he will have his computer on hand to check in with the family.

“Just my computer to be able to FaceTime with my family, maybe a couple of books,” said Turris.

In addition, playing video games, and books seem to be the ideal Performance.

“I just bought an Amazon kindle recently, so I have that in order to get to the mental sweat and not just watch TV all the time,” he added Sissons.

Although Sissons admits that he didn’t think books it download, coach John Hynes has a recommendation. He finished “the magnificent and mean, books about Winston Churchill, and plans to read it a second time, while in Edmonton.

“When you think about it, it’s not just about great speeches, which he did, but how he managed to convince people that he did. I was able to read it during breaks, but it’s one of those books that I think you’ll be able to pick up a lot more during the second reading,” said Hines.

And then there are some guys like Performance’ forward Craig Smith, who does not need a lot to stay busy.

“Pushups and squats,” says Smith (laughs).

Jokes aside, Smith will probably add all this to your daily routine, both in terms of packaging, he’s still trying to figure it out.

“I don’t know what the situation will look like if it will be another road-like the Internet, then we need to make something work. I’m not going to bring too many things, but if I can get the guitar there, that would be great,” added Smith.

The Nashville Predators begin their journey in Edmonton on August 2, against the Arizona coyotes.
