If the Canucks can get Rinne to flop and slide (see above) they might score more than 1 goal.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 2 - Predators @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks slugged out a win in Game 1. It was boring, it was uneventful, it was a battle of two Vezina nominees. It was ugly but it was a win. And in the playoffs, it doesn't matter how you win. It just matters THAT you win.
So what do they do to make it more convincing?

Dan, why so worried? You're hugging Higgy and he just scored a goal!
It's all good, baby.

Game Review: Western Conference Semfinal Game 1 - Predators @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks shook off any hangover from beating the Blackhawks in the opening round and came out to play against the Predators. It's just a shame that Nashville didn't do the same.

"Ooooow! That goal hurt my foot! But it was sooooo worth it."
"Look, we are really twins. We raise our hands and sticks in the SAME WAY. Isn't that weird?"

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 1 - Predators @ Canucks
There is no rest for the wicked. The Vancouver Canucks get right into Round 2 with their opening game tonight against the Nashville Predators.
Can they dial it up again with such a quick turnaround, or will they be so gassed after their series with the Blackhawks that they let this game get away from them?

"Hey buuuuuuuudy. Party tonight at the Roxy? WOOOOOOO!!!!! Seriously, Shane. You'll be there right?"
"Yeah, you know I will."

The Vancouver Canucks look to put their first round triumph in the rear view mirror as quickly as possible. The Predators finally got out of the first round and face a formidable opponent, again on the West Coast.
Round 2 starts tonight!

The first round of the playoffs is over, and it was a doozy. The best part is, there are three rounds to go, and the hockey isn’t likely to get any worse as time goes on.
After the jump, it’s time to make Round Two predictions.
