Blackhawks vs. Predators, 2017 NHL playoffs: Game 2 preview and how to watch

The Blackhawks look to even the series at home. The Chicago Blackhawks may be down against the Nashville Predators, but they’re far from out as Game 2 awaits at 7 p.m. on Saturday night. The Predators lead the series 1-0 after opening with a victory at the United Center and will look to put the Hawks in a serious hole with another. There’s little reason to overreact, though, because the Blackhawks are just 2-6 in first-round Game 1s since 2010. They usually need a moment to gather themselves and get the ball rolling, and after a lackluster end to the regular season with Artem Anisimov...

Who should be on the Blackhawks’ 4th line to open the 2017 playoffs?

The big lineup question entering the first round. The good news for the Blackhawks entering the playoffs is that their first three lines seem to be ready to go. It took Joel Quenneville most of the season to find the right mix, but it’s probably fair to assume the Blackhawks’ top nine for the beginning of the first round against the Predators will look like this: Nick Schmaltz — Jonathan Toews — Richard PanikArtemi Panarin — Artem Anisimov — Patrick KaneRyan Hartman — Marcus Kruger — Marian Hossa That’s a strong group of forwards for the Blackhawks to lean on in the...
