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. In the first game of the series the Predators got an early goal and then shut down the Blackhawks on their way to a 1-0 win.
Look for the Blackhawks to come out hungry in this one. They know how devastating it would be to go 2-0 down to the Predators.
The Nashville Predators had all kinds of problems before with the Blackhawks scoring too many goals, so for them to hold the Blackhawks without scoring was huge for them.
For the Predators to win this game they need to come out with the same game plan as game one.
They need to try and get an early goal and then just really focus in on the defensive zone. The Blackhawks have so many weapons that the Predators have to try and contain.
The Blackhawks really struggled coming down the stretch and with the first game of the series. They come into this second game of the series having lost five straight games. They have had problems scoring goals during that stretch.
To win this game they need to come out with more energy in game one.
They now know that the Predators are not going to just roll over and give up they need to come out aggressive. They need to try and get an early goal to get some of the confidence back on their bench.
