Couldn't catch any of the first two periods. Turned on TV when it was 2-1 us. Within about 5 minutes, it was 3-2. Turned off TV, left room, considering never watching the Preds again for the good of everyone involved.
wasnt just you. was at a swim meet until 7 minutes to go in the game. turned on TV just in time to see the meltdown.
We tried to take a night off, almost got away with it, and got burned in the end.
On to the next game.
This! None of the D played their usual game; Leggy's line and Smitty (and maybe Wade) looked like the only Fs out there actually playing most every shift. Long win streak, little tired from travel, looking ahead to back-to-back with the defending champs - a full-house Sat and some early jump fix it all right up.
Dropping by to say good game. I wish the Preds were a little further south, and in the southeast division. There would be some good wars for sure...there is a little edge there when these teams meet compared to other inter Conference matchups I see the Panthers play.
That game was ugly. Mentally they were a stride behind the Panthers all night. Still could have won it. That goal they scored when Shea made the rush and was left out of position when we didn't score ticked me off... A good scoring chance, but the rest of the guys on the ice couldn't do their part to hold the fort.
I'll bet when Legwand makes a good move with the puck he enjoys looking up and seeing Svatos or Wilson crashing the net, instead of Smithson or Ward... And the dee pays attention to Svatos and Wilson, opening up a little space for Leggy. It's so refreshing.
