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).
