One year removed from losing the Stanley Cup Final and the Predators haven't lost a step. The team's goaltending has carried Nashville to a lot of wins this season; Pekka Rinne and Juuse Saros have a combined .922 save percentage.

That doesn't mean the Preds' scoring is lacking, however. The Predators have four +20-goal scorers on their roster who can light up teams. They showed grit and championship-level toughness by grinding Colorado into a pulp, pushing them out in six games. The Predators look like they're on a mission to make it back to the Stanley Cup Final. The Jets have no shot at beating them.

What the Jets lack in experience they make up with guts and young corp that goes all out on the ice. Winnipeg may not have big names, but they have developing talent that is on the brink of stardom. From goalie Connor Hellebuyck to Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien, these Jets have already shown they are ready to shine by eliminating the Minnesota Wild in five games. 

The Jets have gone are 13-2-0 in their last 15 games and show no signs of slowing down. With one of the loudest buildings behind them, there is no way they will lose to the Predators.
