Look at Richards tonight. Scored his 5th goal of the playoffs, on the power play, in overtime.

This team desperately needs a first-line center.
I agree that this team needs a legitimate first-line center, but it's unfair to compare Mike Fisher (a third-line center on a team with good center depth) to Brad Richards, a top line center on most teams.

Fisher definitely failed to go into that extra gear he found in the Anaheim series last year. It would be nice if we could put him down a line (or two) but replace him with someone who belongs there.

Our ice has looked way worse imo. Our ice is atrocious.

A couple of posts. A few nice saves... Mike Smith has been exceptional. Rinne's been OK.

They need a miracle now.

This is the third game we've played there, and honestly a lot of the close shots that nearly went in the puck didn't look to me like it was bouncing around because of bad conditions.

But you could have a point.

Funny that the trash goalie is shutting us out again yet our all world goalie has let in two goals he really should've had. Rinne has to make those saves. Our guys have to bury the chances they're getting.

That's because Smith is essentially unbeatable right now.

I believe in miracles, just don't see it happening in the third period after seeing the bounces and missed chances in the first two.

You are about to see a clinic put on by the Coyotes in the third.

Bridgestone has a ton more events, so Jobing's ice gets to sit out in the open for a lot longer. Makes sense.

It is a weak game by all Nashville players, but Weber. But I gotta say this no call on Legwand really got me thinking if the referees are neutral here. I mean come on, the guy who scored a goal is a "C" he was suppose to be covered by opponent's "C" (Legwand) who is 50 feet behind because he got tripped

im not that negative.. just speak my mind. mostly when I shouldn't lol.. pissed off right now but what can you do... nothing.

lets get ready for next season. going to be a different looking roster.. hopefully the forward corps see a shakeup. I know the defense will.

Fair enough. Maybe it's on GMDP for presenting Fisher as a first-line center then. He obviously isn't one. Just annoying that 1) he's our top line center and 2) when we traded for him all we heard about was how beast mode he is in the playoffs, but he's totally sucked this year.

We need to trade Suter's rights for Parise's rights, straight up, at the draft.

Can't believe I'm discussing summer roster adjustments already. Why are you doing this to me Preds?!?!

Jesus...I'm tired of not scoring. This series has been pure ****. I hate the Yotes. I hate Bettman. I hate Arizona.

You would think all of those COMM classes in college would work for these announcers.

"Carey Underwood, her husband Mike Fisher, trails in the third period."

Oh... does she?

Hornqvist scores first
Weber with a game 5 Anaheim-esque slapper to tie
Bourque with OT winner

I am ever the optimist

We might be done. We might come back. With the number of chances we've had in each of the past seven periods, we can get back into this game. It's just a matter of capitalizing.

Gut check time.

I started getting drunk during the Caps/Rags game.
