Recap: Nashville vs. Chicago

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Duncan Keith tallied a goal and an assist as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Nashville Predators, 3-1, at Bridgestone Arena.

Patrick Kane and Nick Leddy supplied the other goals. Chicago has now scored power-play goals in 10 straight games with Kane and Leddy both lighting the lamp on the man advantage.

"We've been getting some big goals lately at the right time," said Kane. "Hopefully we can keep this momentum going, especially on the power play because you want to take advantage of them."

Antti Raanta turned aside 27-of-28 shots as the Blackhawks have won two straight and five of their last six.

Nashville captain Shea Weber scored his team's only goal and Carter Hutton allowed all three goals on 27 shots in the defeat, snapping a three-game win streak.

Chicago scored quickly when Keith received a dish from Marian Hossa and ripped a shot from the blue line to beat Hutton 1:29 into the game.

Nashville tied the game less than two minutes later. Marcus Kruger went off to the box for a face-off violation. After Brent Seabrook failed to clear the zone, Roman Josi slipped a pass over to Weber, who blasted the puck from the left circle on a one-timer past Raanta at 3:03.

After taking a pass from Patrick Sharp, Kane lifted a backhand over the shoulder of Hutton on the power play for his 20th of the season with close to four minutes left in the first.

"He's got a lot of tools and can do a lot of things with the puck," said Hutton about Kane. "When you give him the time and space he's going to make you pay."

Leddy fired a shot from the left side of Hutton that quickly crossed the goal line into the net and flew out. The goal was originally waved off, but after further review it was deemed a good goal 11:33 into the second.
