Tough game tonight. Edmonton played really solid and gave us a tough game. You could tell the team had just come off of a tough road trip.
Missing Kimmo and Darcy for most of the game hurt too.
That being said, good job battling tonight by the Predators. They got huge goals whenever they were needed.
Talk about some sweet passes on our goals. Forsberg had another awesome assist to Radulov. What a game by Forsberg. Once the guys get more familiar playing with him is going to be awesome. A few times they weren't expecting the pass tonight. He easily could have had a few more assists.
The Arnott, Dumont and Abid line was great. They couldn't do anything wrong it seemed.
Zanon had a good game, especially his blocked shot and then clear during the last minute. He was hurt by the shot but still managed to get up and clear the puck.
It wasn't our best game but we got two points. Hopefully Kimmo is alright (Trotz mentioned on the post game that it was precautionary, but that doesn't mean much).
1. Make a Ramzi Abid avatar. Seriously though he had a great game and nearly had the Gordy Howe hat trick. He could be next year's Smithson/Fiddler/Nichol candidate.... or maybe I'm getting carried away.
2. Kariya is just not sharp right now. The effort is there but he definitely is not in the zone.
3. Vokoun. Brilliant early and then just when you think he is back... he dozes off. Brilliant again.... nap again. I think the Oiler would have won had they quit trying to screen the shots and crash the net in the 3rd.
4. I firmly believe JP will have a monster playoffs. There, I said it. Strong game tonight.
5. Rads may have been the best player on the ice tonight and I agree with the comments on his progress/ development. I love him with Forsberg.
6. Vish with what seemed to be his best game as a Pred tonight. I noticed him IN position and dropping back into position on several occasions. I think the Pred staff's tough love (w/o the love) approach could pay off. I hope it does.
7. Zanon with the hero award for the late 3rd period PP block that should have shattered a bone.
Yah I saw that add for the 1st time tonight.. and jeez!!! LOL!
that has been on for years. but with the departure of drew bennett from the titans they(car company who i shall not promote) fell back to this old one. evidently we have no sports stars in nashville that have good diction.
