Preds totally deserved this one.
Preds were the better team in regulation overall. Luongo played great and the Vancouver defense also played outstanding. They kept us from getting high quality chances. Two really bad plays by Kostitsyn led to the Vancouver goal, great play by Kesler and Burrows there.
But credit to the Predators for finally getting that goal that they deserved. A goal is a goal, no matter how they come and we really deserved that one.
Now for OT, Vancouver DOMINATED play. Vancouver picked it up and the Predators made some poor decisions. Credit to Rinne for stealing us the game in OT. Luongo (well and Nucks defense) really stole one in regulation.
On the OT winner, great plays all around (face off win, Weber quick pass, Suter pass, Smithson's drive to the net).
Now for game 3, the Predators better step it up and generate higher quality scoring chances. I'd like to see Wilson in for Sullivan. I think Sullivan was okay against the slower Ducks, but poor against the fast Canucks.
