Ellis is in the nets tonight. Legwand and Bonk both out. Nichol to most likely center the second line.

Dumont's pass to Radulov was absolutely ridiculous. He has been flat out awesome of late, and the entire line has been carrying us.

I thought Radulov would definitely get 30 goals at the start of the season. After the way the team and Radu. came out of the gate, I tempered my expectations to about 20-22. Now 30 is looking possible again!

It was so sick that Arnott had no idea where the puck was and was still looking for it on Dumont's stick as it was crossing the goal line.

That pass elicited several "ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" shouts here. In fairness to Arnott, Theodore also was clueless on where the puck was and he gets paid to watch it.

On the whole, another solid outing. JP could have scored earlier as could Rads on another nifty move. Weber clearly is looking like his old self as each game passes. This team is on a real roll at the moment.

Ellis!

Nice moves by Radulov to finish for the goal.

Good job again Preds!



On the show "On the Fly" the guy said how Colorado really missed the scoring touches of Sakic, Smyth, Stastny etc. Nevermind the fact that COL was only 4-0-1 in their last 5 games. But gee, I didn't know we were playing with a 100% healthy team vs their AHL team.

I really thought we'd drop this one. Legwand, Bonk out, back to back game with the backup goalie in net who hadn't played is some time.

Just a great overall game by everyone.

While its no doubt Colorado were hurting with their big guns out, there is some truth in how we are displayed on that network and others as you elude to. Usually we have the last highlight of the night and usually they only talk about what the other team failed to do. Its not really a big deal and just a minor annoyance as I still love the show. Overtime we'll hopefully get that respect.

They did have some nice things to say about us for once though with complimenting Ellis (although not much insight..man i'm picky ).

Trotz said he's confident Legwand will play in the first game following the All-Star game, but is not so sure about Hordichuk and Tootoo.
