Preds Take Down Ducks, Look to Topple First Seeded Canucks
Nobody gave the fifth seeded Nashville Predators much of chance to knock of the Anaheim Ducks, and league leading scorer Corey Perry, but here they are in the second round of the NHL Playoffs.
Now the naysayers are out in greater numbers because the Western Conference Final berth is the prize, and the top seeded Vancouver Canucks the competition.
Daniel Sedin and his clone, twin brother Henrik are nearly unstoppable, but as Chicago showed there is a chink in the armor of the stacked Vancouver offense.
The Sedin twins kryptonite is a physical game with players that can body them up and keep them from the scoring zones. That description fits Mike Fisher, and Shea Weber to a tee.
Newly acquired Fisher played phenomenal against the Ducks on both ends of the ice, and Weber was successful in stifling the loaded Ducks first line.
Nashville will have their work cut out, but have all the tools to continue their run in the playoffs.
