Great game last night! I thought the Preds played well and for once, didn't play down the competition. I feel like they knew this was just as important a game as any even though Atlanta is the easier of the road teams this week. Two points is two points and we need all we can get.
Ellis was great in net, facing 30 shots is pretty hefty especially from a team like Atlanta. Given that we have back-to-back games this Thursday/Friday, I assume he'll be in net on Friday again against Anaheim. I look forward to that because he's been doing very well lately (minus the sad loss against Detroit).
Love our goal scorers last night... great to see Suter get his third of the season and for Wilson to shine yet again! His goal just proves that he is a real asset to our team. He is so young and so strong, I really think we can build him up to be an amazing player.
I laughed heartily at the turnout down there. I can't poke fun too much because we ourselves are struggling with attendance issues, but goodness, the entire place looked baron. I saw on Twitter that about 11,000 people came, but I swear it didn't look like that many on television. I guess they don't have the same attendance "requirement" like we do?
We did good staying out of the box and we capitalized on one of our own power plays. Since we have one of the worst (aren't we 27th or 29th on power play goals?) in the league, it was nice to score on it. And we stayed out of the box for the most part! Just a good game all the way around (in my opinion).
Like I said earlier, it's great that we are keeping Detroit behind us. They aren't far, but now the gap has widened to 3 points and that's only a good thing.
EDIT: Oh, and congratulations to Barry Trotz for his 400th winning game! That's something to be proud of.
