Icon27 WCQF: Nashville Predators (C1) vs Dallas Stars (WC1) STARS WIN SERIES 4-2

My prediction: Nashville won the division and has been playing really well as of late, but the Stars haven't been doing so badly themselves, either.

I see this one going the distance. Home ice will likely be what tips this one in the favor of the Preds.

I hope the Flames play Nashville in the West finals.

But there a few rounds to worry about first.

Going to be a low scoring affair.

Preds in 6 or Stars in 7. Game 6 will be big.

I put Preds on my bracket but after more thought, could see Dallas coming out of this one. Stars in 7

Predators in 6. Both teams play strong defense and have good goaltenders. Nashville has the offensive depth to outlast the Stars.

I'm going to take Dallas in 7. Something not right with the Predators this season and is the Stars can get quality goaltending they could pull the upset.

No idea in this one...feels like it will be the lowest scoring series in some time but even that could flip.

Preds in 6.

The Preds picked up Granlund, Simmonds, Boyle & McLeod for this run. I really like the Granlund pickup and could be a difference maker. Simmonds is your prototypical playoff player and if he gets hot, watch out. Adding four players can equally have negative impact of your team and Rinne is yet to prove he's Stanley Cup capable.

Preds in 6 as they're too deep for Dallas

Stars score 8 goals in 6 games and win the series. Dallas has more game breakers and goals will be at a premium in this series.
