Chicago Blackhawks 3, Nashville Predators 0: Crawford Shuts Out the Preds

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Blackhawks sure looked like the best team in the NHL tonight, thoroughly dominating the Preds and pushing their league-leading record to 10-0-2.

Hey, at least it was a sellout, right?

Whether you want to blame tired legs, or a deficiency in speed & talent, the Chicago Blackhawks were clearly the superior team on the ice tonight, as the Predators had trouble sustaining any pressure in the offensive end. Ultimately the shot totals went 27-17 in favor of the Hawks, and Corey Crawford earned his first shutout fo the season.

There are no Random Observations worth sharing from this one, it was just a 60-minute dumpster fire.
