The Blackhawks outshot the Predators 29-17 and generated ample chances despite playing their second game without Patrick Kane, the team's leading scorer when he was injured against St. Louis on Wednesday. The star forward is on injured reserve with a lower-body injury and could miss the rest of the regular season.

Chicago fell six points behind Western Conference and Central Division leader St. Louis, which defeated Pittsburgh 1-0 earlier on Sunday.

The Blackhawks' Corey Crawford made 15 saves.
