good points..

The good/so-so:
We're 17th in the league in points.
We're 6th in the league in GA/G.
Also 17th in the league in PP%.
16th in the league PK%.
9th in shots against/G.
7th in the league in faceoff %.

The bad:
We're dead last in GF/G.
Dead last in shots/G.

Yep- without that incredibly lucky bounce, we probably walk out with a 1-0 win.

I'd like to add that it was a crazy PP goal. Bounces straight off the class over Rinne's head. None of our guys see it. Brown catches it RIGHT before it goes beyond his reach and snaps it right into the net.

It was a heady play by Brown...not much you can really say against the Preds PK on that one. There were other times where the PK did not look as good, but Rinne came away with the saves.

yeah i guess we're .500 .. just like you said, doesn't feel like it. we still look pathetic offensively..

there was a game against san jose with vokoun where we were outshot 25+ shots and still won.. so as bad as we think we are, it could always be worse? our offense just makes me want to punch things...

^Wow.

Thought Legwand had a decent game tonight. Rinne was by far the best player on the ice for both teams though

And a HUGE, basically unnoticed effort from Spals, IMO. He is going to have to do a better job of finishing, though, as he had a regulation win on his stick with an open net.
THANK GOODNESS I'll be waking up in just a little while after a PREDS "W".

Hey I noticed his effort! Especially on the PK.

Soak in this win everyone! SJ is going to be a big challenge and hopefully the MOJO continues!

I'm tired of complaining about stuff so I'm not going to complain that 4 of our dmen took 8 shots, leaving the forwards with 6 shots for the whole game. Or that it's a good thing we scored first because we had no offense again and just hung on for that win.



Spaling was definitely Spals to the wall tonight!!


Just going to enjoy this win tonight!!

A shootout win while getting badly outplayed with record low shots?

We only had 11 after 3 periods! I don't know whether to cry or laugh.

Who knows. A quick wrist shot would have been perfect. Instead he let Quick come out and get squared up to face the shot. I hate that.






I think Doughty planned that shot. Watching the replay it looked like he deliberately aimed high trying to get the puck to bounce off the glass and maybe hit a player in front (kind of like the washington game against Dunham).

When you only get one goal, and it comes from Brandon Yip... you take that victory and run with it!!!

Now THAT was a Thrashers type of win. Rope-a-dope the opponent to sleep by letting them double your shot production and then strike!

Good win, but man...14 shots with an OT?

Positive: We win, and are back to a point per game.

Negative: We didn't score in the last 64 minutes of the game. We've scored once in 124+ minutes....

I believe that's 11 goals in 8 games? Yikes.

Yep, except with our Thrashers, the shots would have been 44-22, and we would have won 6-5 instead of 2-1.

True. Poor Kari and Pavs. They'd put about 4 games worth of effort into 60 mins.

And last night, we had 1 shot in a 29 minute stretch of playing time- I just cannot wrap my head around that- does not seem possible for an NHL team.

Jake Muzzin kept the Kings tied late in the 3rd. I now hate him.

Our three stars in the season opener were just as slanted. Portzline said that the Nashville PHWA didn't vote on them, it was voted by "designated bloggers."

Muzzin was a FA invite to a Preds development camp a couple of seasons ago.

Add to the list with Cory Conacher of "impressive rookies that slipped through our fingers"

We won, which feels good...but it shouldn't be confused with things being "fixed," because the offense was still pretty awful for long, long stretches of the game.

Gill and Hannan were terrible, again.

Our inability to break out of our zone right now is extremely troublesome. Something has got to change in our system if we are going to succeed because right now we can't seem to make more than one pass before it gets taken away.

Pekka stole this game as we should not have been anywhere close to tied entering the third period. Count ourselves lucky and move on. Hopefully this instills some confidence in our guys cause boy we are sucking pond water out of a garden house right now.
