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?

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.

The Vancoouver Canucks finally... FINALLY... broke through their mental and emotional wall formed by two straight years of being schooled by the Chicago Blackhawks in the playoffs. The Canucks are on to the second round and but did everything possible to almost make that NOT happen.
