  • Blackhawks down 3-0 in first round series after OT loss in Nashville

    by Scott King @ScottKingMedia The Blackhawks had one simple adjustment to make Monday night in Nashville if they wanted to cut the Predators’ series lead to one game instead of three; they had to make Preds goaltender Pekka Rinne’s job tougher than they have so far. The Hawks outshoot the Predators in Nashville’s two shutouts over Chicago in the series’ first two contests, but those shots weren’t quality, and they certainly weren’t from in front of the Preds’ net.
