The Chicago Blackhawks have the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs and will have a matchup with the Nashville Predators. The Blackhawks have plenty of experience to bring to the playoff table, but might have a tough time dealing with the Predators who have one of the best players in the league — P.K. Subban. Chicago is looking for its fourth Stanley Cup in seven years and this has been a good season for Chicago to accomplish this feat.
