Western Conference Playoff Update: Sunday’s Action

Sunday, 04.22.2012 / 11:23 PM / Nashville Predators Playoffs Coverage
By Jay Levin  - Nashville Predators
Sunday's Stanley Cup Playoff Schedule saw only one Western Conference game, but that game brought a good deal of clarity to the Preds Round 2 playoff opponent.

The Los Angeles Kings overcame a 1-0 third period deficit for a 2-1 overtime win at Vancouver to close out the Western Conference Quarterfinals series 4 games to 1. The win made the Kings the third Western Conference team to advance to Round 2. Los Angeles will face St. Louis in the Conference Semifinals.

The Preds will face the winner of the Phoenix/Chicago Series. The Coyotes lead the Hawks 3 games to 2 with Game 6 scheduled for tomorrow night (Monday, April 23) in Chicago. If necessary, Game 7 will be held Wednesday (April 25) in Phoenix.

The two potential options for Nashville in Round 2 are...
 -- If No. 3 seed Phoenix wins --- Nashville will open Round 2 in Phoenix. The Preds went 2-2-0 against the Coyotes during the regular season with one win in a shootout. The road team won all four games, each team winning a one-goal game and a three-goal game.

 -- If No. 6 seed Chicago wins --- Nashville will open Round 2 at home against Chicago. The Preds went 4-1-1 against the Hawks during the regular season with just one overtime game (a Chicago OT win). The Preds won two-of-three meetings in Nashville, as well as two-of-three meetings in Chicago. Three of Nashville's six games in the regular season series were back end of back-to-back sets for the Preds, while one of the six games in the season series was a back end of a back-to-back set for the Hawks.
