The Nashville Predators will host the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night to begin the Stanley Cup Playoffs. 

By clinching a second-consecutive Central Division title on Saturday, the Preds ensured they would have home-ice advantage through at least the first two rounds of the postseason, and the first-ever playoff meeting between the Stars and Predators will start in Nashville. 

The Predators will open Round One at Bridgestone Arena with Game 1 set for an 8:30 p.m. (CT) puck drop against the Stars on Wednesday. Game 2 then comes Saturday evening in Nashville with a 5 p.m. start before the series shifts to Dallas.

Games 3 and 4 will take place at American Airlines Center, with the first meeting set for Monday, April 15 at 8:30 p.m., and then Wednesday, April 17, a 7 p.m. start.
