After shutting out the Predators on Saturday, the Blackhawks will return home and face Nashville again for the third time in seven days. Catch all the action on Comcast SportsNet, beginning with Blackhawks Pregame Live at 5:30.

The Blackhawks will look to go undefeated against the Predators as these two teams face each other for the fourth and penultimate time this season. But before they do that, the Blackhawks will do a little something special for some of their most heroic fans.

Prior to the start of tonight's matchup, the Blackhawks will host "Hockey Fights Cancer Night". The team has partnered with the Make-a-Wish and Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer foundations to recognize seven local children whose wish is to meet their Blackhawks heroes. The team will wear special pregame jerseys while broadcasters and coaches wear lavender ties, all to be autographed and auctioned off to raise funds for Chicago Blackhawks Charities and various cancer research organizations.

For those of you attending tonight's game, autographed pucks will be available for sale throughout the United Center concourse. The proceeds, as well as the funds raised during tonight's silent auction, will all go toward the organizations as well.
