Nothing ever happens in the world now without the masses taking to social media to comment on it and playoff hockey is no different.
Last night as soon as the Nashville Predators win over the Colorado Avalanche in game six made everything official for a second round date with the Winnipeg Jets, everyone had to chime in and have their say.
Mark it in your calendars, everyone.

Weather nerds though quickly noticed a slight flaw…
Storms rotate counter-clockwise. Your clockwise rotating storm is the equivalent of a Preds sweep. https://t.co/HNKTZAAINQ

I think we found a Neil deGrasse Tyson burner account.
Of course we had our own tweet as well…

We’ve since been told it’s not *that* kind of Predator which totally makes our reaching out to Arnold Schwarzenegger pointless now.
The Experts Chime In…
Nashville/Winnipeg…gonna be great

Absolutely pumped to be covering what should be a titanic Jets-Predators second-round series. Has the potential to be the best playoff series played this spring.

I was impressed by the #Avs for the majority of the series. I think the future is quite bright there.

A common theme / thought started popping up though whenever anyone talked about these two teams meeting now in the second round as opposed to later in the playoffs:

It's the matchup hockey fans have been waiting for.

The Local Takes…
You all asked for Nashville, we got Nashville. Let’s do this hockey! #NHLJets

Nashville flight and hotel booked. Bring on the second round for what should be a great series. Looking forward to continuing being part of our extensive #NHLJets playoff team coverage at @WinnipegNews. Like the weather, we're just getting warmed up!

Oh hey, speaking of travel… Nashville is a slight bit farther away from Winnipeg than Saint Paul was, but Bartley had your route all figured out for you..

Others have already figured out travel, they just needed to figure out tickets to the actual game…

It’s Gonna Go Seven
Everyone has pretty much assumed this series will go all the way to seven, but of course leave it to Mr. Randy Turner to be very detailed in just how that final game will go:
My prediction for #NHLJets-Preds series:
They will play 7 games. All will go into OT. They will play total of 358 periods and score 114 goals. The series will end in 32nd overtime of Game 7 when Wheeler, the only player left standing on both teams, scores into empty net.

Huge, if true.
