There was a point in time when everyone counted the Predators out. They were almost certain the Predators weren’t making the playoffs due to their struggles and inconsistencies. Suddenly, things changed. Nashville executed a historic point streak to clinch themselves a wild card spot in the NHL playoffs.
They’ll now face the Anaheim Ducks beginning Friday, April 15th.
The Predators have had success against the Ducks this season. They came out victorious in two out of the three games against Anaheim, so we know they can beat them.
Of course, it’s just a matter of which Predators team show up. If they begin the playoffs with momentum, they just might make it past the first round. The organization hasn’t made it past the second round in Franchise history.
As promised, I will try my luck and predict every game and every score. Let’s see how correct I end up. These are all just guesses.
