Detroit Red Wings or St. Louis Blues: Which team should the Preds face in the playoffs?

At this time of year, the Nashville Predators are usually in the thick of a bumper-to-bumper race for playoff position, where each game along the way carries implications for how they might finish. Fans in the stands keep an eye on the out-of-town scoreboard as well to see how the competition is doing.
