Exactly, you read my mind.

But it wouldn't really matter, some african village would just get them air dropped on them the following week.

yep terrible D and terrible goaltending on that play. Rinne needed to stay with the puck carrier instead of cheating to the open man.

That's actually how the tradition started.

Nope. I expect they'll settle in and we should see some good goaltending.

Rinne with a beauty there.

Rinne was pissed. Boedker could a built a house in front of Rinne with the time he had.

I would assume as such. Nashville's D hasn't looked too sharp. Still three goals in 2 periods is not what I expected from Rinne.

Why are the announcers acting shocked that there's "so many" goals in this preds game? This isn't a flyers-penguins score. This is quite a normal score. Not every game is going to be 1-0 or 2-1

I picked Smith to win this duel going into the round, but he hasn't looked that sharp either.

Geez, Phx has won like 80% of the faceoffs in this game. Why can't we do that?

Because we're not allowed to use our centers for faceoffs

Remember when we scored a similar goal against the Islanders?

I really think the Preds are the superior team but unforutnately when you run into a team with a goalie as hot as Mike Smith, you're kind of *****ed.

Awesome set play on the faceoff by coyotes. Good win for them, but this series is FAR from over.

I expect Nashville's D is going to tighten up considerably. They were really loose and sloppy at times tonight.

Goaltenders, I think, will also be better.

Yeah, I mean he did give up 3 goals tonight, but he was still in the zone.

They are fairly even.

Nashville has the better top pairing Dmen.

Yotes have better scoring depth.

Goaltenders are a wash. But I think Smith has a SLIGHT edge.
