I have to admit out of all the teams that made the playoffs... Nashville worried me most. They have excellent goaltending, a strong defense, good coaching, and a good defensive scheme. With Chicago's suspect goaltending, blueline injuries, and good offense - I don't think they'll match up well. I can actually see Nashville winning in 6. Perhaps we won't meet up with Chicago in the WCF. Any thoughts?

This game was huge for the hawks. With 2 points they would have faced Colorado and probably would have ran them through the ice and instead they get a very tough and frustrating nashville. Just another reason to be pumped about the win!

I was almost just as excited about this as the Wings finishing 5th. Chicago now has a much tougher opponent in the first round.

Preds have great goaltending and the Hawks are gonna get really tired trying to score on them.

I guess it all worked out pretty well with everything considered. CHI has to play NAS, DET doesn't have to play VAN. I'm still not all that excited about having to play PHX but we'll see how it goes.

I think Chicago will handle Nashville easily.

We always match up poorly with Nashville, but I don't think that's true for other teams. Chicago's defensive injuries will hurt them in later rounds, but probably not here.

I thought the Preds Hawks seasons series was 3-3? I don't know for sure... does anyone?

Nashville gives us trouble but I don't see Chicago losing. Preds have never won a road playoff game and I don't think they're built for the playoffs.

I have a feeling that Rinne may be able to steal a game or two to give the Preds a good chance for the upset. Plus for the Preds they do have a somewhat decent backup in Ellis who as we all know from 2008 almost did the same thing to the Wings.

Today turned out absolutely PERFECTLY.

1) The Yotes are the best playoff matchup for us.
2) L.A. and Vancouver are evenly matched and very familiar with one another, which very well may lead to a seven-game series.
3) Chicago misses out on playing Colorado, a team they'd probably have obliterated; they don't play L.A., a team they'd probably also have had their way with; and they play a Nashville team with excellent goaltending and a very physical lineup.
4) San Jose gets to play Colorado, and Colorado will have a chance in that one.

Booyah.

Nashville might be able to beat Chicago over a 7 game series. They're a team that never quits and even if they go down 2-0 (which they probably will) they'll stretch that series out with a frustrating comeback.

Let's just hope Phoenix doesn't pull any of that magic on us, being the storybook team and all.

Here's hoping Chicago's whole team takes Shea Weber slapshots to the side of their feet.

Chicago is 4-2 against them



I'm looking forward to this matchup. For whatever reason, all 6 of their games were played before the new year, so they haven't faced each other in 3 1/2 months. I can see this series going 7.

Why do you think Colorado has a chance against San Jose?

I think they'll get obliterated as well.

Yeah, but they scared the s*** out of us in both series.

They've played us tough in regular seasons and playoffs with their style of hockey.

I'd rather avoid that team altogether.
