Actually what I was about to comment on. No one gives us a chance in hell, how many times do you see those types of picks flipped on their head?

It seems like with this series it's either "we have no chance" or "we're winning". There doesn't seem to be too many that are saying either team can win.

The last time we played them in the playoffs I think we should have won that series in 5 games. Only game 3 we were never really in. All the others we had leads or were the better team, but for whatever reason we couldn't get the win.

This year I just don't see us winning. And I hope like crazy that I am wrong and all you saying we will win can rub it in all our doubting faces when we do win!

Don't forget the games we allowed a goal in the last minute of a tie game (montreal, chicago, winnipeg). That's 3 more points we could have had, even if we lost all 3 in OT.

I mean, truthfully you can find points left on the table for every team, but the fact remains that this team seems to have a mental lapse at the end of games. How many times do we see a goal allowed late in a game, even in games that we have a large lead. Or like Thursday at Dallas (or vs buffalo and NJ), we have a large lead and let off the gas and let the other team back into the game.

These late game mental lapses, slow/poor starts, mid game lulls all have to be corrected before game one. Whatever the reason is, not playing 60 minutes in the playoffs against Chicago will make for a short playoffs.

I guess the good news is that we usually come out strong against Chicago, at home anyway.

It's going to take our best effort, hopefully they do it. I have faith that we can do it, I just don't have enough of it.

If anyone is surprised by 8:30 start times you're being incredibly naive

I know it's our home games and I want our barn full of preds fans but maybe just once it would be cool to have the NHL have to explain a half empty barn in the playoffs because the fans told them to go stuff themselves when they scheduled a game so late on a school/work night.

I was really hoping this would be reversed. So the holiday weekend games are 7pm. First day back to work and we get the 830 games.

Not sure there is much that can be done about this, and it's definitely nothing new, but still annoying nonetheless for those with early wake up calls the following day.

I don't follow the NBA but assume it must be similar. Same issues there?

Makes no sense why Chicago gets an 7PM Thursday game when ours is at 8:30. That and I think this is the 3rd year in a row we've been screwed out of a weekend game. Two years ago we had home ice and Chicago got both, now they have home ice and they still get both. I'll likely be calling my rep today to see if they will buy my ticket to game 3 back.

Then either Hawks fans buy up the tickets or we have to hear about how we should be moved to Quebec.

Our game will follow whatever EC match up they choose to feature on NBCSN And make sure we get the next slot. This the National Pens/Blackhawks Channel we are talking about.

Yeah, that's BS but Game 4 is on Thursday, because there's a concert in the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday.

That schedule absolutely sucks for out of town people like us. It is tough enough for people who live in Nashville, but just try having to do a 7 hour round trip drive to come to an 8:30 pm Monday night game. Assuming no OT, we wouldn’t get back home until nearly 3 am.

Playoff hockey games may be my favorite thing to do on the planet, but at this point I am going to have to consider actually not going, which will absolutely kill me if that happens.

I understand that normally getting home ice helps get you better dates- but how about this:

There is only ONE playoff team this year that does not have at least one weekend home game. You guessed it- the Predators. All other 15 teams have at least one home game on a Friday/Saturday/Sunday.

That is incredibly frustrating.

Don't care how it happens, but we need to fill the barn with our fans. We are going to need every advantage we can get.

But being 3 hours away makes it incredibly difficult. But I will be there, one way or another.

Fortunately most people don't have to get up THAT early.

It is annoying but it beats the alternative of being off until October. Of course odds are this problem won't last very long anyway.

A lot of animosity from fans because Chicago has long been under the skin of Preds fans. Hopefully an elite version of Pekka Rinne. A supposedly different level from Subban (although he may still not be 100%). If past playoffs are any indication, you can expect to see Colin Wilson leaving you wondering why he isn't a 30 goal scorer.

And one or two goals by the Hawks as the result of a penalty that should've been called but miraculously wasn't, otherwise known as "Chicago typical".

This goal infuriates me. I was there sitting by a Blackhawks fan too.

Or Crawford sticking his leg out and tripping Smith earlier this year when we had a one goal lead. Smith gets tripped, gets called for the penalty, Chicago scores and ends up winning.
