NASHVILLE Two more games, and the Chicago Blackhawks will take a much-needed break.

But tonight, its about getting two much-needed points.

The Blackhawks will be at full strength again tonight when they visit the Predators. Niklas Hjalmarsson took the last two days off to heal from some blocked shots, but the defenseman will play tonight.

I had a couple bad ones the last time, so I just took a few days off, he said. Im feeling good today, so thats all that matters.

Meanwhile, the Blackhawks are looking to get as many points as possible in these back-to-back games against the Predators.

A lot of games are big, but these are divisional games, defenseman Brian Campbell said. Were gearing up for tonight and well try to worry about tomorrow when that comes. But we want to have a great weekend.

The Predators will be without defenseman Shane OBrien, who was suspended for two games for a high-sticking incident on the Florida Panthers Stephen Weiss.

Corey Crawford will start tonight for the Blackhawks; coach Joel Quenneville said Marty Turco could possibly start tomorrow nights game back in Chicago.
