Bring that same passion defensively and take care of the puck and I have no doubt this team can go far. If they don't well then I cant see them beating Detroit.
Does anyone realize that we were:
A) Playing a team that is absolutely clawing to just play in the playoffs
B) We were on the road
This game meant a lot to the Preds for home advantage in the playoffs, but it meant about 10x more to the Yotes. And we were on the road. Playoff hungry teams are lethal, and we pulled it out tonight. Yes, a regulation win would have been nice but they also missed a wide open net (hit the post) in the first that would have ended the game in favor of the Yotes in regulation had it gone it.
Take the win and leave it at that.
