Preds lose. Why didn't they put Gaustad out there to win the faceoff they lost all of them. I don't care if he isn't offensive we have to get the puck.

Back to losing way too many key face-offs. Phoenix dodged another bullet. We've got a lot of work to do.

They never said it would be easy. Down 3 games to 1, we need to bring it back for one more home game.

Smith's headed for a Conn Smythe win if Phoenix makes it to the finals.

This reminds me so much of 1995, a huge Flyers fan they met the Devils in the conference finals. Flyers had the Legion of Doom line that season and the Devils had no stars (Brodeur was just breaking out then, I think it was his 2nd full season). It was very, very frustrating to watch because I knew the Flyers had the more talented roster. The Devils went on to win three cups...

feels the same to me now watching the Preds being frustrated by the Coyotes. Preds have the better team, it's just not happening.

Nobody knows whether Rads or AK would have scored on Smith either. Ask the Blackhawks their skilled guys couldn't do it either. They lost it still isn't over but it is bleak.

Try as you might won't get me to be a pessimist until the Coyotes win that 4th game.

Fair enough, and to be honest I'm about 4-5 shots (lost count...) of rum into my Saturday now.

I was sick to my stomach seeing Brandon Yip out there with 1 minute left in the game. Not saying Radulov would have scored or assisted in the game (despite is PPG right now), but he certainly would have given us a better chance than brandon yip.

Nice to see Trotz finally take Sk off the 1st line with 5 minutes left. He's been watching Sk's nothingness on the first line for the past 20 games. Only when he's in total desperation mode does he make a change. Unbelievably stubborn and I've been a Trotz suporter for most of his career here.

This is Predators hockey. Inability to finish and scraping by. We'll never go deep with it.

MAN UP!!! You keep saying Trotz did the wrong thing while failing to say what he should have done in your opinion. What should Trotz have done coming into tonight's game? Full roster ... full lines. If you can't say that, please quit whining.

I really appreciate the principled stand. Maybe I would have done the same thing... But let's be honest, this lineup is pretty thin offensively past the Erat line that's not on every night.

Preds hockey won't give you **** in the playoffs without any skills. This isn't the regular season where more than half the games you play backups or Gustaffson or JoeSchmoe... The goalies you face are Mike Smith and Jonathan Quick in tight playoff hockey... Yip and co are of zero help.

The lineup absolutely needs to be changed next game. Major no-brainer.

I'm sure I'll get railed by the company of Yip-haters, but I thought he had a pretty solid game.

Wilson needs to get shots off quicker.

Not giving enough credit where it's due. Outside of the Kings, Phoenix is arguably playing the best hockey of any team left, regardless of how their roster looks on paper. Add Smith having a Conn Smythe type of post-season...

If we lose, I'll be incredibly disappointed, but I give full marks to the very sound team we're up against.

game 5, if I'm Trotz I put AK and Rads back in and spread all of the talent across 4 lines. Make it impossible for Phoenix to match a shutdown line on any one player.

Erat, Rads, AK46 need to be on separate lines. Gotta be something really unique...

Hornqvist - Fisher - Erat
Bourque - Legwand - Radulov
SK74 - Spaling - Tootoo
AK46 - Gaustad - Halischuk

Yip is a decent checkingline player, not a scoringline player. Until Poile and Trotz realize the difference, scoring will always be a issue and we won't make it deep in the playoffs.
