The Nashville Predators have faced the Chicago Blackhawks three times thus far during the 2014-15 regular season. Back in the middle of October, the Blackhawks hosted Nashville in their fourth game of the season and eventually beat the Preds in a 2-1 overtime victory. Just five days later, Chicago trekked down to Nashville and the Predators got the best of the Blackhawks with a 3-2 victory.
Just two weeks ago, Chicago came to Nashville yet again and were much luckier this time, winning 3-1. The Blackhawks got on the board early with a Brandon Saad goal in the first period. Marian Hossa what ultimately be the game winner in the second period, giving Chicago a 2-0 lead. Just thirty seconds into the third period, Colin Wilson got the Predators on the board, but Nashville couldn’t get anything else going in the remainder of the final period and Hossa would put the nail in the coffin with his second goal of the game with a little more than a minute remaining.
With three games in the books already on this young season, the predators will get just one more chance to beat the Blackhawks. And strangely enough, that will be taking place in a little over a week on December 29th. Unless these two teams meet in the postseason, which is certainly possible, they will not play each again in 2015 until next season.

It’s unfortunate these two teams won’t be playing again this regular season, but, thus far, the two have had three great battles and it’s expected that the fourth and final installment will be just as good. Let’s hope it’s not the final time these two hit the ice together before the Stanley Cup is raised in June.
