The Blues and the Predators will kick things off in the second round with these two teams competing for a chance to continue their postseason. The Predators got to enjoy a rest after sweeping the Blackhawks, while the Blues had a little less time off, taking five games to eliminate the Wild. During this previous season, the Blues and Predators faced off five times, with the Blues winning three of the matchups. This will be a hard-fought series because the Blues are looking to make it back to the western conference finals and the Predators are looking to make it out of the second round for the first time in the team’s history. Let’s take a look at both teams’ chances to win the series.
The Blues were not the favorites to win their series with the Wild, and yet they did. This team looks a whole lot different than what we have seen in the regular season and looks like a team capable of making it to the finals. With that said, the team still has a lot of work to do because even though they did win game five, they looked a little sloppy on the ice. After watching that overtime and the overtime between the Canadiens and the Rangers, I have to say that the Blues have work to do. Speed is key to winning, and always going on the attack and looking for the next goal is a great mentality to have. The Blues had a 3-1 over the wild going into the third and yet let the Wild tie it up, for it looked like St. Louis was trying to hold their lead rather than go on the attack. New series always seems to bring out a new team, so we have to wait and see how the Blues are able to stop the Predators and win this series.
The Predators did something no one had expected, not just because they eliminated the Blackhawks, but because they swept them. This team caught everyone’s attention with their series win, with many seeing this team as a favorite to represent the western conference in the Stanley Cup finals. Nashville still has some work to do, as they will face the St. Louis. P.K. Subban seems to really have found his place with this team and can help bring them to their first appearance in the western conference finals. If the Predators can make a repeat of what they did to the Blackhawks and manhandle this team, then they will prove they have the stuff to win it all. With the heart and soul of Nashville backing this team and with a great roster, there is no telling how far this team will go.
With such a matchup in the works, any diehard hockey fan can’t miss it. Check below to see how you can watch this thrilling matchup.
