Chicago Blackhawks @ Nashville Predators Tips


It will be Fourth vs Fifth when the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Nashville Predators in an NHL Central Division regular-season game on Saturday (April 3). Nashville are currently 4th in the Central Division, one place above Chicago, although both teams are on 39 points. 

This will be the fifth time these two teams have played each other this season, and Chicago are yet to win a game. Nashville scored back-to-back wins over the Blackhawks in January, then turned that trick again March. However, all four of their games have been extremely close, low scoring matches, several of which could have gone either way. 

Despite Chicago being 0-4 down, these two teams are so evenly matched that the law of averages would suggest that this time around, Chicago will triumph, and I’m backing the Blackhawks to do just that and score a close win over the Predators. 

  • Chicago 5th in NHL Central Division
  • Chicago 17-21 this season
  • Nashville 4th in NHL Central Division
  • Nashville 19-19 this season

Head to Head 


The Chicago Blackhawks and the Nashville Predators have played each other a total of 92 times. Currently Chicago leads this head-to-head 47-45. In their last eight games over the past two seasons, Nashville lead 6-2. In their most recent meeting (on March 29) the Predators were victorious 3-2.

Chicago Blackhawks Form


The Chicago Blackhawks are currently 5th in the NHL Central Division. They have played 37 games with 17 victories and 21 defeats, five of which were overtime shootouts. Chicago have 39 points, equal to that of fourth-placed Nashville Predators, their opponents on Saturday. 

Chicago are one of the most successful NHL teams in history, and are six-time Stanley Cup winners. Right now it’s a stretch to see them reaching the playoffs, but the season is far from over. Current form would cast some doubt over them achieving that goal; the Blackhawks have lost three of their last four matches, most recently against the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3. 

Nashville Predators Form 


The Nashville Predators are currently fourth in the NHL Central Division, with 39 points from 38 games and a 19-19 record. Nashville have been in devastating form of late, and prior to their loss on Friday to Dallas, they had won six-straight games. Their recent record is still a very impressive  8-2 in their last ten games. 

Included in that recent run of wins were back-to-back victories over the Chicago Blackhawks. However, both games were close, finishing 3-1 and 3-2. In fact, all four of Nashville’s wins over Chicago this season have been extremely close, low scoring matches, with the two games in January finishing 3-2 and 2-1.

Verdict

While the Nashville Predators are 4-0 over the Chicago Blackhawks this year, all of their games have been low scoring affairs, and all but one scoreline was separated by the odd goal. Based off their current head-to-head, it’s almost impossible to pick against a win for Nashville in this game, and that’s exactly why I’m backing the Blackhawks!
 
After four games that could have gone either way, yet all went to Nashville, luck would demand that Chicago are long overdue a win. Therefore I’m backing the Blackhawks to edge out the Predators in another low scoring matchup.
