Colton Sissons (Colt A Name “Conjuring Up” The West) And Pekka Rinne Help Nashville Win The West

May 23, 2017

Colton Sissons scored three goals including the go ahead to stay, game winner with 6 minutes left in the third period while Pekka Rinne made 38 saves as Nashville 6’d Anaheim (Ducks) (6-3), advancing to their first NHL finals series.

Likely the 16th ranked Predators will face the second ranked, defending champion, Pittsburgh Penguins but still might face the 13th ranked Ottawa Senators in the finals, which will begin on the Monday night /Memorial Day, likely, but again far from definitely, in Pittsburgh, with a “happy” Emrick for a second straight season.

In their 18th season, Nashville has made its first finals, winning a home 6th, vs a higher ranked team just as San Jose (Sharks) did in their 24th season (18 is 3/4 or 75 percent of 24), a year ago.

The lower ranked team, (the Cup winning ’14 L.A. Kings and ’15 Chicago Blackhawks were the other two teams to do so) has won four consecutive Western Conference finals in the NHL.
