January 10, 2009: Nashville 4 vs. Chicago 1 - David Legwand nets a pair of goals and Pekka Rinne stops 34 shots as the Preds celebrate Steve Sullivan's return with a win in Nashville.


More stats and info to come.

Nashville Player to Watch: David Legwand has four points in his last two games since being moved to the left wing.

Nashville Reason to Worry: The Preds will likely be without the services of Jason Arnott tonight, and will also be without Steve Sullivan, as he recovers from his first game back in 22-ish months.

thought there should be at least two posts before the game starts

arnott is lazy, but without him, those lines are not very scary

boys are going to have to play real hard, or goalie is going to have to steal a game

this one isn't on tv either? jeez. They really need to spread out the non-televised games.

So, they don't want Sully playing because these are back-to-back games?

sorry, does anyone know why Sully isnt playing tonight? Is his back hurting him? Or do they just not want to rush him playing back to to backs already?

They don't want to rush him into playing back to back games.

Didn't see much of the game but I tried to listen in between. It sounded like it was the opposite of Saturday night.

It always seems to happen that when one team misses an opportunity to score on an odd-man rush (Tootoo/Erat/Weber) that the other team comes right back down the ice and scores themselves (Chicago).

Ellis made some heart-attack plays.

Nice goal by Erat. Pretty pass from Tootoo. Legwand with 5 points in the last 3 games.

Weber/Suter each -2.

Only 41% FO.

I thought of the game frequently earlier in the day and then completely forgot to listen when it was actually on. Grrr.

I'm glad to hear that Ellis got the start. When I read that Rinne was going in a back to back I didn't like it. I like Rinne, but felt that it would be rough for Ellis to get pulled like he did and then not even get to play the second game of a back to back. It's good to keep both goalies competing to stay sharp.

I hope this Leggy on the wing thing lasts a long time. We just don't have enough skilled wingers to play with him and let him be a playmaker from center, and he's not the sort of center who can create his own goals. Yet our maybe less skilled but "steady" type centers can at least control the puck long enough to let him get into a scoring position. I have no idea where or how he played Sunday, but I see he did assist on the goal. I was worried that maybe from the wing we'd lose some of his defensive ability since I thought he'd tend to be deeper in the zone before we lost the puck, but instead it seems to have energized him and he still seems to be able to harass and create turnovers.

I noticed Arnott was out, but I haven't heard what the injury is and how long he will be out.

I think it's an upper body injury and the paper said he could be back Tues. vs. Toronto.

I hope so, that lineup is pathetic down the middle without him.
