Nashville Predators vs. Winnipeg Jets
This’ll be a tough matchup to call with both teams playing extremely well coming down the stretch. Can the Predators take care of business and potentially steal one on the road? Can the Jets use their home-ice advantage? Can Laine stay white-hot? Or will Rinne continue to be a brick wall?
Prediction: Nashville in 7.
Vegas Golden Knights vs. Anaheim Ducks
I know I sound like a broken record, but can Vegas keep their historical season going? The playoffs haven’t been too kind to the Ducks in recent years, especially with an aging roster, but that can be used as motivation to get over the hump. Golden Knights are playing with house-money, and any success will just keep propelling this team to silence their doubters.
