Absolutely. Marty has been the most consistent player this round for Nashville. Guys must hate matching up against him when he is in beast mode like this.

Good chances on the power play. Gordon is going to have a huge bruise on his arm from blocking that shot.

Yeah, right on the arm. He was hurting the rest of that shift. Shame we couldn't take advantage, hopefully he'll be back quickly a la Halischuk.

Major props to anyone willing to block a Shea Weber shot.

so Fisher scores a goal and has controlled the puck well for long stretches on the PP... but he's playing terribly and needs to sit?

Sometimes I feel like i'm watching a different game than everyone else. If the Preds could find an open shooting lane on the PP Fisher might have an assist or two tonight.

We're outplaying them. Both of our goals were total flukes, but we've had tons of good chances. Weber, Goose, and Erat are playing awesome, Fisher and Wilson look awful. Mike Smith is playing like his TBL self. Hali got hurt but is playing now. Weber injured Andrew Gordon with a slapper.

Fisher's pass got tipped by Smith into his own net....he made a bad pass, not a good play. I love goals as much as anyone, but he didnt do much.

Much better play by our boys in the 2nd than first. Great forechecking and good hustle by lots of players.

40 minutes down, 20 to go.

Go Preds go!

Outhitting 21 to 12.

Winning FOs 21 to 18.

even strength.. fisher has been better. his whole line.

but on the PP, he just SITS on the half boards... holding the puck and wasting time... then he might throw one on net. right before he turns it over.

fisher is better suited for even strength. good at defense. decent at offense. on the PP he just isn't good.

my 1st unit would be wilson with erat and hornqvist

2nd unit would be leggy with bourque and sk

Smith was squared to any possible Fisher shot. If he let's one go at Smith, it's into the crest, held, and we get a faceoff. Instead he goes for the pass to the wide open player and Smith gets his stick in the way to break up the pass, which deflects in.

Another case of when he does the RIGHT thing, he gets criticized.

The point is, it was in Smith's reach. If he had poke checked it well instead of knocking it into his own net, its a missed chance instead of a goal.

Regardless, yes, he did score. Not pretty, but he scored. I still don't think he's played a strong game. Just my opinion.

Smith hasn't accomplished much since week six of the season. Seven goals in the first six weeks, seven goals ever since ... with PP time. Halischuk is the smart choice for a 4th liner. Toots is generating tonight and staying out of the box. Wilson is the guy so many have been ranting we need in. Smith isn't taking Fisher's spot and doesn't fill the role that Yip does. The 4th line tonight is a true energy line with a bit of offensive punch.

"Not played a strong game"

and

"Terrible" - "Smith should be in over Fisher"

are completely different

I'm happy with what I've seen of Tootoo so far in the game. Working hard, good hustle, hitting, keeping it simple.

I probably over-reacted a little because he just isn't playing the way I'd like him too. I maintain Smith is better offensively, but I understand we need Fisher for defensive purposes.
