Blackhawks Vs Predators Preview: Hawks Look To Head Into All-Star Break On Positive Note

Hawks will be without their Captain Tuesday against Nashville.

The Blackhawks welcome the Nashville Predators to town Tuesday before enjoying a nice long break for the all-star game this weekend.

The Hawks and Preds are playing the second game of a home and home. On Saturday the Predators beat the Blackhawks 5-2. Saturday was the first meeting of the year between the two clubs.

Captain Jonathan Toews is expected to miss Tuesday's game because of injury and may also miss this weekends all-star game.

The probable goaltenders for Tuesday's game are Corey Crawford (16-11-4) for Chicago and Pekka Rinne (26-11-4) for Nashville.

The all-star break couldn't come at a better time for the Blackhawks. Patrick Sharp is starting to skate again after a wrist injury put him out the past few weeks and now Toews is nursing an injury as well. The time off is much needed for the team to get healthy.

Tuesday's game is scheduled to start at 7:30 and will be televised on CSN.
