He really has stopped the thunderous hits.

It looks as if everytime he goes back to get the puck, he doesn't play the puck at all because he's trying to protect himself from a hit. Before, he would be the one hitting the oncoming opposing player or he would play the puck and absorb the hit.

We'll probably never know until the playoffs are over, but it's obvious something's wrong with him physically. He's a completely different player right now, and it's not a good thing.

I decided to check out the Preds board, and man they have some bitter fans. Every penalty called against Nashville is a dive, and a few posters going a little overboard insulting not only the team, but also the city and its residents...

Pathetic really, a bunch of clowns... But it makes the victory that much sweeter.
I saw that too, pretty bad but it was only 3 or 4 posters (out of 5 or 6) so its not like its the Preds' entire fanbase.

I was going to go post something about a Suter hat trick - a cross-check, a slash and a takedown but then decided against it after seeing what mood they were in already.

that's what i see too. his timing is off, so he hasn't been the force he usually is. confidence also looks like a problem, but again it can be chalked up to being a split second behind where he usually is.

I hope that's all it is because that would mean he'll round back into top form.

I'm sorry but at first I was like "Wow, that Preds crowd is great- they're so loud! and they're having fun, it's great!"

BUt now, it sounds like a damn carnival there! With the Car smashing outside, the thunder sticks, the lame chants ("It's all your fault!".

I literallly felt like I was one of those circuses where the crowd is really into it.

All that stuff owns. It's cool that a non-traditional market like Nashville has really embraced that team and forged it's own identity.

Oiler fans are taking this pretty personal as well. Some very angry posters there.

So is the one on Nashville's board right now. Thirdmanin is losing what's left of his mind.

Kesler is starting to play like the man people always hoped he'd perform like in the post season, Trevor Linden.

Here's the link to the TOI chart:

http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreport...1/TV030234.HTM

Edler with a very low 16:21. Hamhuis and Bieksa 23 and 24 minutes. Samuelsson looks like a PP specialist for now, very few shifts. Higgins obviously has earned AV's trust, along with Lapierre.

Great to see what Kes and Burr can do in the playoffs when healthy. They are both difference makers right now - we are a skilled team but their workmanship is taking over the series.

They have a great atmosphere and are one of the louder arenas but I laughed at their reactions this game which shows their lack of knowledge

without starting a war again--a case can be made the same goes for this place somedays

it all comes down to perspective

may I remind you of PGT thread were "some" canuck fans were convinced the entire world was against them--nothing delusional about that, eh?
