NASHVILLE — Desperation: it usually brings out the best in a team that’s facing it. It’s what can make eliminating a team on the postseason ropes so difficult.
NASHVILLE — The Blackhawks entered the third period tied 1-1 with the Nashville Predators, bending a few times but otherwise playing a solid road game.
NASHVILLE — The numbers don’t lie. At least that’s how Predators coach Peter Laviolette looks at it.
It's win-or-go-home for the Predators as they head into Game 5 of their opening-round playoff series, which means the Blackhawks can expect to face a determined, desperate team tonight in Nashvill
