Last night during the intermission of the Stars-Yotes game [which was a great game, Upshall with 2 goals], VS did a segment on the possibility of all 5 central teams making it.

Basically said that they've had to play the class of the NHL [Detroit] 8 times a year so all the teams have been taught to catch up to and then surpass the Wings. So basically, being dominated by Detroit for a few years was a real blessing in disguise.

They said that the Central division is a division of coaching and goaltending, they all said that all 5 teams would be there in the end.

Thats the attitude!! I'm not a Preds fan but that I think that would be a great series. I really think the Preds could upset. Rinne can do better than Osgood/Conklin in a series, IMO. And while the Wings are obviously a ton more skilled, the Preds are like the Blues in that they play a hardworking, team oriented game. Detroit is scary though cause they can decide to turn it on at any time and when they do, they isnt a better team out there. And I think this late season push could really benefit teams like the Blues and Preds who have been playing playoff hockey now for two months and kicking butt in the process. They already have that playoff mindset going in.

Although its nice they were talking about us on the broadcast and that they think we will make it, I'm not so sure I buy the idea that it is because we have had to play Detroit so many times,lol.

i would rather face the wings or sharks(actually perfer the sharks-that kinda sticks in my mouth) than face the nucks/flames. ... we ain't getting no better than those three at this point. so if we make it, most likely it is the same old wings/sharks vs. depleted preds. same song 5th verse.

You know, every time I see the topic I think I see "My friends, we have 5 forwards left."

Which is probably closer to the truth. If the Preds do make the playoffs, the better matchup would be Detroit. It will be a rollercoaster ride till the end of the season.

I could change it to reflect not only the amount of games but also forwards we have left....

Are they expected to win them all? They had to lose sometime.

It's ridiculous that every time this team loses a game people start acting like the team is going to tank.

Im just trying to be realistic here, I hope they win them all from here on out and pull a major upset, but you know the injuries are mounting high and I;ve read this book 4 times already, I know how it ends.


Trust me, I hope more than anyone that I'm wrong.

Kronwall just tied it up for the Wings.
**** and Backes just took the lead for the Blues. Ok not only did Backes get the GWG but had 4 goals on the night, damn.
Go Vancouver!!!

Thanks alot Wings and Canucks

Things aren't going our way gentlemen. I hate to be a party pooper but the way Anaheim and St Louis is playing... and St Louis has the much easier schedule, well unless we win all 5 with our depleted lineup... I don't think we will make this year. Nice try though.

And yes I want to be wrong

I see it the same way, but the Blues and Ducks both have played 1 more game on us. We could still pass the blues and be behind the Ducks only by virtue of them having 1 more win than us by simply putting up a W tonight...

Ducks and Wild lose in regulation and bj's lose in OT!

We're safe for a few days. No games to worry about Monday!
