Predators - Canucks replay on NHL Network: The Game 1 Open Thread

Ah, those heady days of the second round, when the battle cry from Nashville was Full Speed Ahead. Tune into the NHL Network at 5:00 p.m. Central (or again at 9:00) for a replay of Game 1 of Predators vs. Canucks, and join in the thread below to recapture a little hockey atmosphere here during the late August swelter...

Going into this series, the Preds felt good about the fact that they kept up the pace offensively with the star-studded Ducks, and won the opening round without relying on Pekka Rinne to bail them out. The Presidents Trophy-winning Canucks presented a deeper lineup, however, so even if the team could manage to keep the Sedin twins in check, there were other challenges to meet as well - a Vezina Trophy finalist in goal, and an emerging star on the blueline in Kevin Bieksa.

And let's not forget the matchup that was foretold back in February, when Barry Trotz mused about the chance to watch Mike Fisher battle head-to-head with Ryan Kesler.

Yup, this one shaped up to be a doozy...
