Hawks begin preparation for Predators
By Jesse Rogers
The Chicago Blackhawks began preparations for the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Tuesday. They held a 50-minute practice in advance of their opening-round game against the Nashville Predators on Friday.
The pace of practice was intense. After it was over, coach Joel Quenneville said they would address a different aspect of their game each day. Tuesday was more about drills than specifics. There was no special teams work.
Troy Brouwer returned after missing four games due to an illness in the family. Duncan Keith was given the day off for "maintenance."
