Ugh. Veteran move by Kariya to draw that penalty. Tough call by the officials......it could go either way, as Kariya definitely did try and go through Hamhuis. Lets hope the Preds kill this off. This could make or break us right here...
EDIT: Looks like they threw Kariya in there, I'm guessing for diving or interference?
the MO for the team. take the other teams best shot and keep grinding. it seemed the blues went into the prevent after they got up by 3 with only 10 more SOG in the last 55 min of play. like a wise man once said....just play your game.
All I can say after that game was WOW!!!! That was an unbelieveable comeback from our guys. I was relieved when the second started that Toivonen was in net, I had a feeling with him in net we could at least pull even and salvage a point. That line with Toots Peverley and Bochenski ()has really been playing well. Great timing and great to see them finally getting some rewards for their hard work. Let's go Avs!!!!
I checked the box score about 10 minutes in and we were down 3-0 and I was so angry. So I didn't check again until just now and was pleasantly surprised at the final score. How the hell did that happen?? All goals from the 3rd and 4th lines, just amazing. I'll have to watch the highlights when nhl.com puts them up.
Its a shame the Predators had to even come back like that. There is still no excuse for coming out so bad.
The lack of finishing by the Arnott line and the total lack of offensive pressure by the Erat line is concerning.
To me it looked like Ellis was drained, almost look like he didn't have enough energy to move from post to post. Anybody that knows hockey knows that games are like that it don't matter who you play better bring it night in night out, look at the Ottawa and Buffalo games (although Buffalo pulled it out like us). I would like to see our record post-Redwing games, I bet we don't fair well. I think we spend so much energy in those games to beat them we come into the next game some what spent.
