It's a showdown between the two teams that finished with the most, and second most points in the NHL's regular season.
The Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators finished with 114 and 117 points respectively after 82 games. The Jets then got by the Minnesota Wild in five games in the First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, while the Predators eliminated the Colorado Avalanche in six games.
As for the league's two best teams meeting this early in the playoffs, head coach Paul Maurice doesn't have an issue with it.
"They were in the eighth seed last year, and got to the Final. They earned that right to get there from that seed," said Maurice.
"It's good to play when both teams are as healthy as they're going to be. They're as fresh as they're going to be. It's still early on in the playoffs. It makes for good hockey."
