Sweeping Chicago, Again

The sky would be falling in Chicago if the Nashville Predators managed another sweep of their beloved Blackhawks. They already mostly think it was a fluke and that they’re God’s gift to hockey. They’ll most likely never respect the Predators, but sweeping them two-straight years would be an outstanding gift to hockey fans everywhere.

This is another long shot to happen, mainly because it’s no guarantee that the Blackhawks will even make the field. They’ve taken an obvious step back, and are no longer the class of the Western Conference. If they do sneak in as a wildcard, it’s conceivable that the Predators would draw them with home-ice advantage.

As much disdain as I have for the Blackhawks, sweeping them again is unlikely. I would at least give them two wins in a seven-game series if they played today. However, why not hope for the very best? Here’s to hoping Santa brings another broom to Smashville to sweep the Blackhawks into oblivion.
