Predators aim to stay perfect vs. Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators will face each other three times in a row starting Monday night in Nashville, then continuing Wednesday and Friday with meetings in Chicago.

The three-game series, combined with the high stakes of two division rivals and playoff hopefuls separated by only two points in the standings, creates the feeling of a playoff series within the regular season.

"It's great," Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane said. "We were just saying usually you don't get something like this in the regular season because of the way the schedule is. Obviously, with the team we're chasing, it's exciting that we have a mini three-game playoff series here and hopefully can gain some ground."
