A lot of what people are expecting out of this series will be falling onto the shoulders of the goaltenders for each team.
There is little to no question that Nashville will give Pekka Rinne the nod for the starts in the postseason, however the goaltending situation is much more unclear in Anaheim, but we'll get to that in a bit. Rinne was in goal for all three of Nashville's wins over Anaheim during the regular season, and has had an unbelievable year, sporting an impressive 2.12 goals against average, and a .930 save percentage.
On the other side of the rink, Anaheim has been a team of nothing but question marks when it comes to the goaltender situation. All-Star, Jonas Hiller, has been recovering from fatigue and lightheadedness for several weeks now, leaving the goalie job up for grabs between Dan Ellis and Ray Emery, both who have stepped it up recently.
So, all-in-all, between Pekka Rinne backstopping the Preds, and either Emery, Ellis, or possibly Hiller, backing up the Ducks, these games are almost sure to be decided by just a single goal, and scoreboards won't be tallying too many goals per game.
