The Chicago Blackhawks finally have a couple of wins under their belt. They swept a home weekend series with the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings aren’t much better than Chicago on paper but they had a much better start to the season so it was an impressive homestand. They still might not be a playoff team or anything like that but now have something to build on. After four straight games of giving up five goals, it was nice to see them get some wins the right way.
The Chicago Blackhawks are headed south to play the Nashville Predators.
The Nashville Predators are a much different animal than the Detroit Red Wings. They are a much better and deeper team but they aren’t the Cup contender that they once were. They still have an outside chance to figure some things out and be a playoff team but they are beatable. Whether or not they are beatable for the Blackhawks remains to be seen.
