The Blackhawks have their work cut out for them Saturday night with a big matchup against the Predators in Nashville. A sixth straight victory would put Chicago atop the Central Division for the first time in weeks, and avenge a 3-2 loss to the Predators in mid-October. It won't be easy with Scott Darling going up in goal against Pekka Rinne, though, so I'll be impressed if things come together. Doesn't mean the team can't keep rolling. Here's your first thread.

Go 'Hawks!
