Game Thread: Nashville vs. Carolina, Game 1

Go Preds.

The Nashville Predators and Carolina Hurricanes face off yet again tonight, this time for the first game of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Unlike last Monday’s game, which was as close to meaningless as a game with that kind of sentimental value can possibly be, tonight’s game matters tremendously.

The Predators are underdogs. To win the series, they’ll most likely need Juuse Saros to play spectacularly and for the skaters to give him support for more games than that doesn’t happen. Here’s hoping tonight’s a start.
