If I was a Hawks fan I would be very nervous. You hate to say Sun. is a must win for them but what is the winning pct. in a series when a home team goes down 0-2 on home ice? Cannot be good.

When will idiots stop repeating the myth that the Preds play a trap game?
Shame, shame...

I noticed in the post-game interview one of the questions was something to the effect of, "can't you tell us how you've modified your trap for this series?". Trotz didn't bother correcting him.

People just can't believe that a team can play that well defensively with out it being a true straight up trap.

Wow, I loved how we trapped the Hawks yesterday. I mean we were setting it up for 2 periods and they finally walked straight into it at the start of the 3rd. Had me worried there for a second

What can I say, those Jersey lessons we attended for a couple of season are finally paying off.

On a serious note though, I personally can't really judge people for calling us a trap team as our offensive trios look so flat out there that it really looks like we're trapping. They can't get anything going in the offensive zone so they spend most of the time in the neutral zone(trapping)

Still feeling the emotions from yesterday. Really made my day. Congrats to the boys once again

Edit: I meant to say our offense SOMETIMES looks really flat, not to be misunderstood

Trapping teams don't send two in on the forecheck and allow teams to carry the puck into the zone the way we do.

What do you mean by that exactly?

Nobody's pumping their chest here if that's what you meant. Just a lot of joy cause of the important road win(unless if I missed a couple of posts).

oh come on....some of use are gloating a little because sooo many hawks fans said we'd be lucky to win one game but NOW they understand this series is gonna be tough for the hawks.

And the crap about the trap is just us amusing ourselves because the Preds don't really employ a trapping system. sure from time to time during the game you'll see a true trap but not often. The Predators rely on speedy forwards to forecheck hard and back check even harder all while the defensemen slow down the rush and push the puck carrier to the outside.

What should we be saying?

"Hooray, we got a win! We're still probably going to lose the series, but at least this is something to build on!"

Not sure what the percentage is but when Carolina won the Cup in 06 they went down 0-2 at home in round 1. Either way the percentage still must be bad.

Look we know there is a fight on our hands but the pressure is on Chicago now. No one wants to say must win BUT Nashville's style plays well to Chicago and if the Preds were to go up 2, that means home field and only needing to win 2 games to go to the second round.

Do you mean Charles Wang? Actually yes, I am a fan of Wang. He does a lot of philanthropy, is trying hard to get the Lighthouse project built and while I can't say I'm an Islanders fan I hope they can improve next season.

Have a little faith in your team, man. Come on, I'm sick of this perpetual underdog attitude that everyone has about the Preds. We know how good of a team we have, we know that if we play a consistent, solid 60 minutes of hockey we can put up a fight against the best teams in the league. 180 more minutes is all it takes; easier said than done, of course, but it's not out of the question. I can't even remember how many times I saw a Hawks fan brush the Preds aside and boldly predict a quick sweep, us Nashville followers are far too modest.
