Nashville Hockey Now’s Michael Gallagher talks Nashville Predators with Braden Gall of 440 Sports and Emma Lingan of the Hockey News on the Gold Standard podcast.

In a special livestream edition of the show, we breakdown the Western Conference playoff series between the Predators and Vancouver Canucks.

We discuss who has the edge in playoff experience, whether Andrew Brunette or Rick Tocchet has the coaching advantage, can anything be gleaned from the three regular-season meetings between the two teams?

We also debate how the Predators’ top players stack up with the Canucks’ top players, dive into the goaltending matchup between Juuse Saros and Thatcher Demko, and we give our official predictions for the series and the Stanley Cup Final.
