SERIES NOTES:

After Game 7: The Nashville Predators visited and defeated the Anaheim Ducks 2-goals-1 to complete a 4-games-3 best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1293 victory. With the series 1293 win, the Nashville Predators improve their best-of-7 NHL playoff series record to 3-8 overall and 3-6 in the Preliminary round. With the series 1293 loss, the Anaheim Ducks see their best-of-7 NHL playoff series record fall to 8-7 overall and 4-4 in the Preliminary round. The win order for the victorious Nashville Predators in series 1293 was WWLLLWW: Series 1293 thus becomes the third NHL Preliminary-round series, the ninth NHL series (all rounds), and the 22nd MLB/NBA/NHL series (all rounds) to follow that win order to completion. The precursor entity to the Anaheim Ducks, the "Anaheim Mighty Ducks," followed the WWLLLWW win order to completion in series 730, over the Phoenix Coyotes in the 1997 NHL Preliminary round. The Ducks as the "Anaheim Ducks" now have a home ice Game 7 record of 0-4 the worst such record in MLB/NBA/NHL Game 7 history. The Nashville Predators win their first Game 7, home or road. Nashville was outscored 18-goals-14 by Anaheim. The last time in a best-of-7 NHL playoff series that the losing team outscored the winning team by four or more goals was in series 1126, in which the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2011 NHL Preliminary round but were outscored 22-goals-16.

After Game 6: The Nashville Predators hosted and bested the Anaheim Ducks 3-goals-1 to tie best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1293 at 3-games-all. When tied 3-games-all in a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series, the Anaheim Ducks have a Game 7 record of 0-4, while the Nashville Predators have never played in a Game 7. The Anaheim Ducks have a home ice Game 7 record of 0-3. The precursor entity to the Anaheim Ducks, the "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim," had a 2-1 record in Game 7.

After Game 5: The Anaheim Ducks hosted and bested the Nashville Predators 5-goals-2 to take a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1293 lead of 3-games-2. When leading a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 3-games-2, the Anaheim Ducks have a series record of 3-3 and a Game 6 record of 3-3. When trailing a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 3-games-2, the Nashville Predators have a series record of 0-5 and a Game 6 record of 0-5. For the Anaheim Ducks with a 3-games-2 series lead (such as what they now hold in series 1293 against the Nashville Predators), while all three Game 6 victories resulted in series victories (by definition), all three Game 6 losses resulted in series losses.

After Game 4: The Anaheim Ducks visited and outscored the Nashville Predators 4-goals-1 to tie best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1293 at 2-games-all. When tied 2-games-all in a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series, the Anaheim Ducks have a series record of 2-5 and a Game 5 record of 5-2 with an active four-Game 5 winning streak, while the Nashville Predators have a series record of 1-3 and a Game 5 record of 1-3. Tied 2-games-all, Nashville notched its sole best-of-7 NHL playoff series victory upon first winning Game 5; each Game 5 loss has led to a series loss by the Predators. Series 1293 becomes the first MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series in which the road team won each of the first four games since series 1232 in the 2014 NHL Quarterfinals (in which the Anaheim Ducks also opened LLWW @ HHVV against the Los Angeles Kings).

After Game 3: The Anaheim Ducks visited and shut out the Nashville Predators 3-goals-nil to drop the Nashville Predators best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL series 1293 lead to 2-games-1. When leading a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 2-games-1, the Nashville Predators have a series record of 2-1 and a Game 4 record of 1-2. When trailing a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 2-games-1, the Anaheim Ducks have a series record of 1-3 (with an active three-series losing streak) and a Game 4 record of 3-1.

After Game 2: The Nashville Predators visited and defeated the Anaheim Ducks 3-goals-2 to take a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1293 lead of 2-games-nil. When leading a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 2-games-nil, the Nashville Predators have a series record of 0-0 and a Game 3 record of 0-0 so it is that Nashville is now in uncharted franchise territory. When trailing a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 2-games-nil, the Anaheim Ducks have a series record of 0-2 and a Game 3 record of 2-0. The Nashville Predators in series 1293 thus win Game 2 of a best-of-7 NHL playoff series for the first time after having won Game 1.

After Game 1: The Nashville Predators visited and defeated the Anaheim Ducks 3-goals-2 to take a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1293 lead of 1-game-nil. When leading a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1-game-nil, the Nashville Predators have a series record of 2-2 and a Game 2 record of 0-4. When trailing a best-of-7 MLB/NBA/NHL playoff series 1-game-nil, the Anaheim Ducks have a series record of 1-4 (with an active four-series losing streak) and a Game 2 record of 3-2. Series 1293 Game 1 was the last 2016 NHL Preliminary-round Game 1 to be played, but featured the earliest Game 1 goal in the 2016 NHL Preliminary round at 0:35 into the first period by the Predators: The first Nashville series 1293 Game 1 goal was the fastest to start an NHL Preliminary-round Game 1 since series 1256 Game 1, in which the New York Rangers scored only 0:28 into their 2015 NHL Preliminary-round Game 1 against the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins.

Pre-series assessment: In the 2015-16 NHL regular season, the Anaheim Ducks finished seven points ahead of the Nashville Predators. From 1939 through the 2015 NHL Finals round, when NHL teams led their best-of-7 playoff series opponents by seven regular-season points, they have posted a best-of-7 playoff series record of 16-12 (.571) with an active six-series losing streak in those series against those opponents. MLB/NBA/NHL best-of-7 playoff series 1293 is the 15th best-of-7 NHL playoff series for the Anaheim Ducks, and the eleventh for the Nashville Predators. In best-of-7 NHL playoff series, the Anaheim Ducks have an all-rounds series record of 8-6, a Preliminary-round series record of 4-3, and a Game 1 record of 9-5 (with an active three-Game 1 winning streak), while the Nashville Predators have an all-rounds series record of 2-8, a Preliminary-round series record of 2-6, and a Game 1 record of 4-6. Series 1293 is the second best-of-7 NHL playoff series meeting between the Anaheim Ducks and the Nashville Predators. In their previous meeting, in series 1129, Nashville defeated Anaheim in six games in the 2011 NHL Preliminary round.
