The Chicago Blackhawks travel to Nashville to faceoff against the Predators. The let’s keep the red out campaign should have a rough one with it being a weekday game during the Christmas Holiday season.
The Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators have an interesting history be it a short one with the citizens of Smashville and the team that runs the franchise having two different opinions of their team.
The franchise sees the team as a real rival of the Blackhawks that doesn’t need out of towners to come to Nashville to fill up Bridgestone Arena. While Nashville fans see Blackhawks fans as dollar signs when they arrive. The Chicago Blackhawks Red jersey should fill up the rink tonight that’s for sure.
On to the ice, the Chicago Blackhawks will be missing Marian Hossa again while their offense has struggled without #81 in the lineup. Since the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the San Jose Sharks easily 4-1 on the 18th, the Hawks have struggled putting pucks into the back of the net.
The Hawks did get the rust off against the Jets, so hopefully a road trip to Nashville is perfect recipe for the Hawks right now. This should be a fast paced game so maybe the offense can wake up.
The injury bug isn’t limited to the Chicago Blackhawks with the Predators missing superstar P.K. Subban for a couple game starting with tonight’s tilt.
