Blackhawks Game Notes For Saturday vs. Nashville
* Since the start of the 2012-13 season, the Chicago Blackhawks have dominated their home matchups against the Nashville Predators in the win column (10-3), but the games have been very tight (39-32 goals).
* Both teams had a pair of 30+ goal scorers last season. Kane (46) and Panarin (30) hit the mark for the Blackhawks and Forsberg (33) and Neal (31) for the Predators.
*New Predators defenseman P.K. Subban has amassed 279 career points in his eight seasons in the league (including his goal last night), which would rank 3rd on the Predators’ all-time list for defense.
* Since Pekka Rinne became a full-time starter in the 2008-09 season, only two goalies in the league have more shutouts than his 40 (Lundquist 42, Quick 42).
