Game 1 has been decided. Mike Fisher's overtime thriller will eventually face the winner of today's match-up for all the marbles.

Only one more match-up in the Golden Games to set the championship. The best performances from this past Predators season came down to the following four games:

In Game 1 of the final four, Mike Fisher's incredible performance in Game 4 of the Sharks series soundly beat out Filip Forsberg's hat-trick against St. Louis. Fisher will face the winner of Game 2 later this week.

Speaking of Game 2, this match-up is a bit lopsided. The heavy favorite, Pekka Rinne's Game 7 domination of the Anaheim Ducks, goes against the underdog Shea Weber. Weber's hat-trick against the Red Wings wasn't expected to make it out of the first round... yet here it is.

Here is the rundown for your Final Four, Game 2 match-up:

#1 Pekka Rinne (4/27/16 @ ANA, Game 7)

  • Held Ducks to one goal despite Ducks owning puck possession (63.1% Corsi-For)
  • Stopped 14 of 15 shots in the 3rd period
  • Game Recap
  • Video evidence of Corey Perry not scoring a goal in the playoffs:

#7 Shea Weber (12/5/15 @ DET)

  • 3 goals on 3 shots
  • Showed the Motor City what Nashville's power play is all about, scoring thrice on the man advantage.

  • Video evidence of one of the reasons we will miss Shea Weber:
