There's something special about the Predators' Stanley Cup Final berth

"It's very clear who he is as a player", Laviolette said of the 25-year-old Watson. "Like, his family and his friends watching him play, I don't know how you can cheer for a guy like that", Johansen said. "We practiced at a real high tempo for about the first 30 minutes of every practice".

"We let them back in the game in the third, but thank God we have Colton Sissons", Rinne said.

This Nashville Predators hockey team never ceases to amaze me.

Colton Sissons scored his third goal with 6:00 left, and the Predators eliminated the Anaheim Ducks with a 6-3 win in Game 6 on Monday night in Nashville in the Western Conference finals.

As it turned out, the Ducks didn't have a monopoly on resilience in the conference finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

When asked the significance of that achievement, Laviolette offered this self-deprecating quip.

"It probably means I got fired a lot", Laviolette joked about his accomplishment.

"There's no question he has had a huge impact", Whitney said. The Predators won 6-3 to win the series 4-2 and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. "There was a turnover and I actually got lost on the backside, and [Jarnkrok] made a lovely pass, a saucer pass right on my tape, and fortunately I put it away". We finished on a Wednesday and had to open again on Friday, whereas other teams had to open on Saturday. The rebound went out to Sissons, who scored his second of the game. He's got so many tricks up his sleeves. Their best showing prior to this year had been playing in the second round.

Readers, are you surprised by the Predators' run to the final? The Penguins hold a 3-2 lead going into Tuesday's Game 6 in Ottawa.

"When we made the comeback against Boston, he was a major reason why it happened". Game 7 is in Manchester on Wednesday night.

Call it sour grapes if you wish, but Randy Carlyle thinks the Anaheim Ducks got screwed by the NHL's schedule-maker. After each Nashville goal, they went through the same sequence of jeering Bernier's name, shouting, "You suck!" and then, "It's all your fault!" "Peter's not stubborn. He will adjust and try to create favorable matchups throughout his lineup".

"There's no question in my mind, live, in-person hockey in the playoffs, it's the best", said Matt Joki, a Predators fan. Nashville has become the first team to achieve that goal since the 2012 Los Angeles Kings, who went on to win the Stanley Cup against the New Jersey Devils. For a team with the power play-specific talents of Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Cam Fowler and Sami Vatanen, that's alarming and unacceptable. Esten brought "Here Come the Predators" to Mandile in early 2016, and when the team earned their spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year, they chose to record it. Captain Mike Fisher, the only player on the roster who has played in the Stanley Cup Final with Ottawa in 2007, also missed those two games with an upper-body injury.

But Nashville, Tennessee is now the epicenter of hockey, and it's better for the NHL than the traditional hockey markets of Chicago, Boston, any of the Canadian cities, and yes - even NY or Philadelphia. "It's nearly the best spot for him to be in".
