Blackhawks 1, Predators 0
Ray Emery made 20 saves for his second shutout in three starts and Bryan Bickell scored the only goal as visiting Chicago took the first game of a weekend home-and-home series with Nashville.
Michal Handzus, acquired from San Jose at the trade deadline for a fourth-round pick, earned his first point with his new team by feeding Bickell a perfect pass on a 2-on-1 at 5:31 of the first period.
Emery, who only needed 16 saves when he blanked Calgary on March 26, improved to 13-1-0 for the league-leading Blackhawks.
