The Chicago Blackhawks can clinch a Stanley Cup Playoff berth in the Western Conference on Saturday.

After the Blackhawks' 1-0 win against the Nashville Predators, and the Edmonton Oilers' 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago will become the first team to reach the 2013 postseason if the Phoenix Coyotes lose to the Colorado Avalanche in any fashion (9 p.m. start time).

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
