Preview: Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks 4/23/21: Two Points, Please

Two points, please.

Nashville Predators

This may sound simplistic, but the Predators NEED two points tonight against the Hawks. Dallas is surging. There’s 8 games left. They need every point they can come by.

I’ll accept more Eeli Tolvanen points (FINLAND!!!!!!!!!!!) and more points from Mikael Granlund, too (FINLAND!!!!).

Chicago Blackhawks

The Predators let their foot off the gas on Wednesday and it came back to bite them in the collective butts.

Vinnie Hinostroza looks like he hasn’t missed a beat, rejoining the Hawks’ lineup and contributing in a big way on Wednesday.

Nashville has been mostly effective at shutting down Patrick Kane...this must absolutely continue tonight. Kane is a game-breaker and his momentum could propel the Hawks to victory in a game where the Predators cannot afford to lose.
