2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Open thread and how to watch Friday’s games

The action shifts to the Western Conference for game two

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Nashville Predators at St. Louis Blues Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis Blues (C3) vs. Nashville Predators (WC2)

After a sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round, the Predators started out the second round in style, by beating the Blues 4-3 in game one. P.K. Subban led the charge for the Preds, earning a goal and two assists.

Nashville will aim to win their sixth game in a row in these playoffs, although Jake Allen and the Blues won’t be discouraged as they look to rebound from the loss, seeing as special teams were the difference in game one.

Anaheim Ducks (P1) vs. Edmonton Oilers (P2)

Leon Draisaitl powered the Oilers to a 5-3 win during game one, and it seems like all the momentum is on Edmonton’s side, despite being outshot in the first encounter 36-32.

Look for Anaheim’s incredible defensive depth to show up in game two, as they’ll be key in shutting down Connor McDavid and company. McDavid only has two goals and three assists through seven games of 2017 action, which would be an impressive tally for most players, but we’re talking about a generational talent here, which means there’s probably a lot more left in his tank.
