Predators to face Phoenix in Western Conference semifinals

The Nashville Predators will face the Phoenix Coyotes in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs that will most likely begin on Friday or Saturday at the Arena in Glendale Arizona.

It will be a match that will feature two of the NHL's hottest goalies as well as top strategic coaches.

Pekka Rinne and Mike Smith were the stars of their opening round series and quality goaltending is expected to continue going forward.

Preds coach Barry Trotz and Phoenix coach Dave Tippett are well known for getting the most out of their players which should set up an interesting chess match from behind the bench.

The Predators were 2-2-0 against Phoenix this season with the road team winning all four contests.
