Should be a tough game, as usual. Since I was called out for posting CBJ facts in the Maple Leafs thread, I'll go ahead and put them in here...
This could be a trap game. In 2006-2007 when our team was ridiculously good, and the BJs were anything but, they still kept us to one goal in three of the games. Two goals (including empty netters) in two others. Five of the eight games were very close. This is a team that loves to play Nashville hard. Our guys need to get up for the game like the Blue Jackets do.
haha nice song for the GDT. Can't stand the BJs, but I'm not even really sure why. They never win, and we've developed rivalries since then with actual teams, but for some reason I still hate Columbus.
I don't see why there should be any hate from the Preds toward the Jackets. They play the perfect guests and always bring a gift of two points to help you guys get into the playoffs. True fact, without the CBJ, Nashville makes the playoffs less
Tom C. just posted a link on facebook from Coach that MR. PREDATOR will return to the lineup tonight. My dislike of the straightjackets comes from those years with Captain Kangaroo behind the bench, and their "duck-like" goonism.
Just a quick note about an equipment drive during Tuesday night's game against the Oil...
Our youth Sled Preds hockey team (ages 5 - 20) is collecting used hockey gear at the gates during the Preds-Oilers game next Tuesday, Nov. 22. Our players and volunteers will be greeting fans at each entrance.
So go grab a new helmet, gloves, elbow pads, or whatever else you've wanted, but couldn't justify the purchase. Then bring your used gear to the game. And ask your friends and teammates to do the same. It's a win-win situation. You get new gear and the good feeling of helping kids play hockey.
I loathe Columbus and everything about that team. Gonna be a chippy bloodbath type of game tonight. Should be some tight checking and big hitting. They hate Jordin Tootoo, so hopefully he can get under their skin. JUST WIN PREDS!!
