Nashville extended its win streak to four games with a 3-1 win over Chicago on Saturday night at United Center. The Predators had goals from Ryan Johansen, Rocco Grimaldi and Mikael Granlund, while Juuse Saros stopped 29 shots to earn his ninth win this season (sixth in last eight starts). Nashville has won three straight and seven of the last nine meetings with Chicago (7-1-1).

The Predators’ victory on Saturday drew them to within two points of the Blackhawks for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Central Division. The Blue Jackets, who play Detroit on Sunday (3 p.m. ET, NBCSN), are three points behind Chicago.

Blackhawks forward Kirby Dach, who was the team’s first round pick (third overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft, made his season debut Saturday night. He had surgery on his right wrist Dec. 29 and was expected to be out 4-5 months; Saturday was two days short of three months. He had one shot in 20:08 of ice time. As a rookie, Dach had 23 points (8G-15A) in 64 games.
