This is the third time the Sharks will face the same opponent in the postseason two years in a row. On the previous two occasions, the Sharks won the first year and lost the second.
Last year, the Sharks beat Nashville in the opening round, four games to one. The Predators say they will be using that defeat as motivation.
“We saw them last year, and I think we’re a little more prepared as a team and as a group,” Nashville Coach Barry Trotz said.
The Sharks enter the playoffs on a roll, having finished the regular season with a 13-1-3 run. “The last three games especially, we’ve been honing our playoff intensity,” defenseman Kyle McLaren said. “We feel good about the way we’re playing.”
