The Blackhawks eliminated the Predators from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Saturday, April 25th (4-3) after six games. The win clinched a 4-2 series victory for the Blackhawks. They overcame another big first-period deficit then a goalie swap for the second time against Nashville. For most of the series, the Blackhawks played sloppy, but they came back right in time.

Game 1
In the opening game of the series, Joel Quenneville pulled Corey Crawford after he gave up three goals on just 12 shots and replaced him with Scott Darling. The Blackhawks rallied from a 3-0 deficit and beat the Predators 4-3 in double overtime.
