The Preds could win this series in 7 and we all have so many annoyances with this team that would be likely exploited in the 3 losses that we’ll think we’re sunk after each loss. Hell, the Preds could win the cup and I think Trotz would be fired on np.com about 7-10 times along the way.
Games 1 and 3 were mirror images of each other, imo. The Sharks and Preds each played great road playoff hockey early and horrible road playoff hockey late in each game. The main difference is that we didn’t play good road hockey in game 3 for as long as SJ did in game 1, thus we didn’t have the cushion they did to hold them off or get it into OT when we faltered. While frustrating last night, it’s been a solid series to watch so far from a strategy and intensity standpoint. At least we’re not watching paint dry….errr….Dallas.
I can’t let myself worry about how or why Trotz should be fired. I can’t let myself worry about the long-term ramifications of ticket sales if we’re one and done. I’ve decided to just enjoy that we have playoff hockey while we have playoff hockey and rip everything that deserves to be ripped when it deserves to be ripped, which is after we’ve truly been eliminated. We have 7 games to win 4. Last night's embarassing loss could turn into tomorrow's classic win. This is the playoffs, even cup winners have their heart ripped out a few times along the way.
