It’s a Western conference, Central division showdown to start the playoffs off.
The eight seed Nashville Predators take on the one seed, Chicago Blackhawks. These two teams seem to match up a lot when it comes to the playoffs, so seeing them facing off again is no surprise.
The two teams have faced off five times already this season.
The Predators won the first game but the Blackhawks have won the last four. In three of the four Chicago wins they scored five goals.
The Nashville Predators have had all kinds of problems with the Blackhawks scoring too many goals when they face off against them.
For the Predators to win this game they need to really focus on their own defensive zone first.
Let the offense come later but they can’t let this game get into a high scoring affair or they will be down 0-1 in the series.
The Blackhawks really struggled coming down the stretch coming into this series having lost their last four games in row, so they really have to be chomping at the bit to get this first playoff game started.
To win this game they really need to put on the pressure on in the offensive zone.
They just need to try and put as many pucks on net as possible and really try to get the Predators rattled early.
If they do that they should be able to win this game.

Free Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks NHL Playoff Prediction:
Much like the regular season games I expect this one to work itself quite the same. I think both teams will get an early goal but from there the Blackhawks will really take over.
