Niemi Shuts Out Predators, Chicago Gets Even
CHICAGO (AP) -- Antti Niemi made 23 saves for a shutout in his second career playoff game, Dave Bolland and Patrick Kane scored and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Nashville Predators 2-0 Sunday night to tie the first-round series 1-1.

Games 3 and 4 are Tuesday and Thursday nights in Nashville.

After giving up two third-period goals in a 4-1 loss in Game 1, Niemi was sharp from the outset Sunday. The rookie had seven shutouts during the regular season.

Nashville's Pekka Rinne made 31 saves, giving up a power-play score to Bolland in the second period and Kane's goal on a 3-on-1 break in the third.
