Food for thought:

- 6-6 at home in the playoffs
- 0-10 on the road in the playoffs
- 1-3 in series openers
- When facing elimination at home, the Predators are 0-4.
- ^ All four playoff defeats have been at home, twice in game 6, twice in game 5.

Most reasonable fans would consider the playoff loss to Detroit in 03/04 a perfect playoff performance from our team. In all honesty, it was the best effort I have seen from our group, and I truly believe we outplayed the Wings in 4 out of 6 of those games (games 1 and 2 were all Predators even though they lost in Detroit).

Both Shark series saw the Predators get significantly out-coached with arguably a better team in 05/06 and definitely a better team in 06/07. 2 wins and a collective 0-4 on the road is inexcusable.

Losing to the Wings in 6 this year...well, I'm not suprised. We didn't have the horses or the team to beat the Wings. That said, the Predators are one of the few teams that match up well against the Wings. A healthy Legwand and Arnott in this series, I believe, would have netted us our first road win. A healthy Sullivan might have won us the series.
