Chicago will play Games 1 and 2 on the road, then return to the United Center for Games 3 and 4, which will be April 19 and 21. If necessary, Game 5 will be played April 23 in Nashville, Game 6 on April 25 in Chicago and Game 7 on April 27 in Nashville, with times to be determined.

In four meetings this season, the Hawks topped the Preds three times. The teams have not met since Dec. 29 when the Hawks won 5-4 in a shootout.
