Series Thread: Western Conference Finals: Anaheim Ducks vs Nashville Predators

Onward we go. Emotional roller coaster of a series but I'm not totally satisfied and I hope the boys aren't either

First change Theodore immediately out Bieksa or Stoner in
Nashville is a physical team but a soft defense so Boll along with the other forwards needs to hit and punish them.
Revenge series with most of the same team from last year. Hopefully they are extra motivated

It might be time to unleash Kase and Rakell against the Predators lower lines and keep Ritchie up top. Man I wish Eaves never got hurt, and it's too bad we don't have a better center than Vermette for Kase and Rakell

I'd love for Carlyle to put Thompson there and his ability to crash the net with 2 skill players

That would be a good one if Thommer is healthy

If the Ducks play like they did in game 7, they should win this series.

Hopefully Nashville doesn't have the speed that Edmonton did.

We have to get goals out of the bottom 6 to win this series, hopefully Eaves comes back

I am okay with Vermette, he wins faceoffs so they start with the puck 60% of the time. Thompson would be great, but he is hurt and would be better with wagner as more of a defensive pairing in case they get caught on the ice.

What I'm worried about is how Nashville defense is scoring. Gibson looks uneasy with picking up slap shots from the point....

I don't even know how they got this far with a 68% PK.

I think we match up with them pretty well, tbh. Hopefully Rinne cools off and we get some guys back, should be a great series.

I'd love to yank Theo off the blueline. He makes me nervous everytime his blades hit the ice.

I would much rather try Bieksa than Stoner at this point. It`s been a while since Stoner has played, although being able to ice ''3d pair'' of Vatanen-Stoner gives me excitment.
Bieksa was pretty good before going down, let`s hope he can regain that form
