You can put together a line of Jones-Goc-Spaling/Smithson/Tootoo and have it be just as effective at containing the opposition while still chipping in the odd goal, and not sacrifice a lot of offense to make it happen. Putting Sullivan with Ward and Legwand adds a whole new dynamic to the line and gives us two legitimate offensive lines, instead of one scoring line and three lines that might contribute something every now and then, like the teams Bengt-Ake Gustafsson likes to put together.
I don't see another line on our team competing with Legwand and Ward as a shutdown line at this time. Sure Legwand has offensive skill, but he's also one of our best defensive forwards.

Why is it ALWAYS against the Hurricanes too? Seems like everytime we play them some natural disaster occurs. Wasn't it a tornado last year?

My guess: 12,000 with only 8k showing

This is nothing compared to the Detroit game back in '99 in the middle of an ice storm.

Here's hoping Ellis gets the start.

Rotation continues in nets. Good thing too, Ellis cut his hand on a workout machine yesterday, but should be fine to backup tonight and play Saturday...

But I guess as long as Guite isn't playing with Legwand and Ward (in which case I WILL throw a hissy fit), I guess we'll be okay.

Ellis posted a picture on twitter of the injury.
POSSIBLE WARNING?

Disappointing news on Ward, but good news that he and Erat should be back on Saturday night. To me, these are 2 important games this weekend. After losing to Calgary, the Preds need to get the 4 pts against two teams they are "supposed" to beat and get some good momentum for the rest of January.

Agreed, if THAT was holding Ellis from a start he needs to hand in his man card.

Dont look now but our points lead on 9th place Detroit is shrinking.

It would be an embarrasment of epic proportions to lose this game tonight

Not really, the West has been a knife fight and 3/4ths this season. There are 10 teams who are fighting for the 8 playoff spots. Also the injuries are starting take their toll on Nashville. If anything, the team needs to get back into form or there will be a move made at the trading deadline.

Sorry, never meant to imply that. Simply that Trotz was quoted before the mishap yesterday that Rinne would get the start in the normal rotation and that it is convenient also that that's the case since Ellis cut his thumb...

No doubt Ellis would play through something as minor as that...

If we lose to this team, we may have a problem.

I really hope not. A loss tonight would hurt a lot. We need to win the next 2 game for sure.
