I picked Nashville in 5.   I'm sticking with it, but I wouldn't be the slightest bit shocked if Bishop doesn't steal some games.

Another case of a team with a fantastic top line (Dallas), but very average looking lines after that....BUT playing a surprisingly good brand of defense, with Ben Bishop or Anton Khudobin backing up the efforts.

 

Preds have been grooming themselves for a Cup win for a while now, and even though they have many times looked very mediocre during the year (mostly due to injury to key guys and just not getting in sync with each other as players got shuffled around), I think they have, overall the better, deeper, more Cup ready squad in this match up.

 

If Nashville plays to their capabilities, they have the horses to close out this series in 4 or 5 games.
But I won't sell the Stars that short simply based on their top line that can go off at any moment and the fact that the goaltending and defense have done stellar jobs throughout the year.

But the Predators are much further along on the competitive scale and they take the series with an eye to at LEAST the Western Finals, by a count of 4 games to 2 and move on from here.

I picked the Predators in six, I think the Stars will make this a series especially with Zucarello back but Nashville loaded up with depth at the deadline and will wear Dallas down.
