No Erat. No SK for a significant part of the 1st period. Playing an undefeated team, on the road, with the league's leading goal scorer .. and we hold them to one PP goal and win in a shootout. Ugly as #### but it's a win.

Honey Badger looked better tonight, as did Hannan. We need Erat back, and Blum needs to stay in our lineup. No more Gill.

Certainly not pretty, but for Preds games, I'd put it in the grinder category, not ugly. That was Predator hockey.

We were close in draws, shots, and hits. We really went toe to toe with them.

Well here are the positives.

1, Hannan didn't blow chunks all night just smaller parts of it

2. Blum looked good, better than Gill, let's just roll 7 for awhile when Erat gets back, sit Clune, who still looked worthless.

3. We actually cycled the puck tonight and generated some decent chances off of the cycle.

all and all that was a Preds hockey type game, good forcheck and defensemen jumping into the play.

Congrats on the win! Great effort by all especially Rinne. Was hoping you would win in regulation, but you still got the W.

I think it was funny that at one point I was like, where is Gill. Blum and Ellis held their own when paired together. I'd almost like to see what Blum or Ellis could do paired with Weber. Keep Josi and Klein together then pair Hannan with who's left between Blum and Ellis. We'd have puck movers on each pairing and a vet with them.

Solid hustle by this team tonight. Any time you hold SJ and LA to 1 goal apiece you're doing well. We may have a tough time scoring but other teams may not be able to score against us. When we work and skate, we are tough to play against. When we don't forecheck and skate hard, we have problems. We need to hustle each and every shift to be successful and I'd have to say the guys did that tonight. Well done.

We may look back at this game as the turning point of the season. Great effort by everyone.

Truly amazing- we now have 7 points on the road trip and 9 on the season. As ugly as it has been, we are in pretty good shape if we can build on this.

No matter what happens, we have survived the horrific 9 game schedule- my goal was 10 points, and we have 9- and actually have a chance at 11- unreal.

Even if we lose at STL, I'll be happy with 9 points. Then lets come home, get healthy, and start getting some regulation wins.

What a great effort tonight. Good team defense, excellent goaltending. Offense still stunk, but Pekka really saved our bacon during a 15 minute stretch there. Not a pretty win, but a win is a win

One more thought- we played back to back at LA and SJ, and gave up a total of 2 goals, both of which were just bad luck- we easily could have had back to back shutouts- very impressive D and G from Pekka.

How did Smitty play overall? These recent goals in the SO give him some confidence?

I personally thought he had a very good game. Was hustling on both ends of the ice, had some good chances, make good plays. He's looking good!

Thanks. Sharks are always a scary team to play against and just glad we were able to get two points against you guys.

We broke out more down the left hand side tonight and we reversed the puck from d to d more than normal too. I like it. It shows they're trying to adjust if nothing else.

Zone time tonight was considerably higher, we have to do that against St. Louis too.

Wooooo! I just came home hammered, tossed the third period on GCL and it was perfect timing. Saw both goals then Peks put his gameface on during the shootout. Honey Badger with a sick SO goal; great move. I haven't read through all the pages but I agree fully with 101st. Undefeated team on the road; I don't care how ugly it was, you take those two points and smile. Very pleased.

Tonight looked like the team that we are supposed to be. The D has finally settled into some order and Blum looked very good being his first game. The offense just need our scorers to score. They've played 8 games and 5 games have gone to a shootout. They are 2-3 with a winner in the last two. 3 regulation game they are 1-2
Which makes 3-2-3-9. The two loses were shuouts and we looked bad in both of them. The 3 shootout loses only one against St.Louis we got smoked. So even though we haven't looked good we managed points and maybe we have finally righted the ship without playing our best hockey and kinda right where I thought we would be and we got our longest trip just about over.

It's amazing how two games, in which the Predators only scored two goals... can swing the pendulum of emotion to the complete opposite side!!!

Best overall game by the TEAM so far this season. The tenacious forecheck, speed and hustle are the trademarks of Predators hockey and tonight that's what they brought and earned two points because of it. Well, that and Havlat's premature celebration!!!

Wait wut? You mean Trotz is actually, you know, coaching??? You can't be serious.....

Seriously though, reminds me of the scene in Major League where they win a game and the manager says, "Starting to come together...."

Hopefully this keeps up.... the standings are already looking like I thought the would with the exception of LA and Edmonton being flipped

Who is this happy person and what have you done with the original NoNecksCurse!?

Can I get a summary of Blum's play last night? I only saw him a few times in the third; seemed mobile and generally good, but not a big sample size.
