They fought back and tied it up and kudos to them but at the same time, we didn't fold after they tied it up and got after them in OT and won it in the shootout. I didn't like giving up a point to them tonight but at the same time, glad we got the two points and kept moving ahead in the standings.
My problem is the Preds have time and time again look like to me lack that killer instinct to go into shutdown mode when they need too. That was my biggest problem with letting PHX back in. Up 3-1 with 8 minutes left in the third you still are trying cutsie little passes and weak plays. At that point you should be making safe plays, chipping the puck in deep, keeping 1 forward high, shooting when in doubt and crashing the net. Not doing curls after you enter the zone and forcing passes. That's the problem I had with the team tonight.
Also, we played waayyyyyyy to fancy in their zone tonight. I'm sick and tired of seeing us trying to force cute little passes. O'Reilly is the worst. We saw he has a good shot. Use it every once in awhile.
