Nashville Predators, Colorado Avalanche series

Will Nathan MacKinnon or Pekka Rinne be the top player in Avs-Predators playoff series?

Kiz: There was no better player in the NHL this year than the Avs’ Nathan MacKinnon. He would get my vote for MVP. But the playoffs are all about goaltending. Even at age 35, Nashville goalie Pekke Rinne is not only Vezina Trophy worthy, he’s the main reason to believe the Predators can win the Stanley Cup. So gaze into your crystal ball, and give me your reasons why MacKinnon or Rinne will be the more dominant character in this first-round series.

Chambers: Rinne is no stranger. The Avs have beat him before (but not this season). You’re right, a great playoff goaltender is difficult to beat. If you’re just talking about MacKinnon doing the damage, that won’t be enough. But when MacKinnon and his linemates are on top of their game, the Avs win. When MacKinnon is at his best, so are Gabe Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen. It just works like that with those guys, and that top line can definitely win a game or two for the Avs.
