"Our goal is to get a playoff spot," center Nicklas Backstrom said. "I just think we should go one step at a time, get ourselves in the playoffs and then we'll go from there. As you know, everything can happen in the playoffs."

The Preds were Cup favorites in September last year and sucked for 80% of the regular season, and even didn't look that great before Game 1 against the Hawks. Backstrom is right.
