It seems that The Nashville Predators are not at their best during this first round of the playoff. The Preds won the President’s Cup this season, as they had the most points in the regular part of the season.

This game is a good chance for to finish this round and to eliminate this Colorado team.I think that Nashvile will finally sort out their current form and they will beat the Avs. Take the Preds to win this one easily.
