Scott Darling will start in net for Game 6 on Saturday when the Chicago Blackhawks face off against the Nashville Predators at the United Center.

The Hawks still lead the series 3-2 and are 8-0 in Game 6 clinchers under coach Joel Quenneville.

Elsewhere in the playoffs, the New York Rangers advanced in overtime against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Ottawa Senators yet again avoided elimination and the Minnesota Wild grabbed the series lead heading into an elimination game for the first time in franchise history.

Oh, the Blackhawks AHL affiliate Rockford IceHogs won their first playoff game since 2008 with a victory over the defending Calder Cup Champion Texas Stars on their home ice in Texas.

Three down, 13 to go for the Hawks.
