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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
