Predators clinch back-to-back Central Division titles
The Nashville Predators clinched first place in the Central Division for the second straight season Saturday after defeating the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Preds will now face the Stars in Round 1 following Dallas' victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.
Scoring could be tough in the Stars-Predators series. Both teams rank in the bottom half of the league offensively and are also two of the stingiest defensive clubs.
