A big game on Monday night as the Blackhawks face the division rival Predators for the final time during the regular season. Chicago needs a win in order to maintain sole possession of first place in the Central Division, so let's hope the team can close out 2014 with a strong effort and expand that lead in the standings. Here's your first thread of the night.

Go 'Hawks!
