*First Official* Game Day Troll

Leave it to ESPN to present the cancelled preseason game schedule.

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Nashville Predators @ Carolina Hurricanes



Carolina Line Combinations

Eric Staal-Jordan Staal- Alex Semin
Jeff Skinner-Jussi Jokinen-Tuomo Ruutu
Jiri Tlusty-Jeremy Welsh-Chad LaRose
Andreas Nodl-Tim Brent-Patrick Dwyer

Pitkanen-McBain
Gleason-Corvo
Harrison-Faulk

Cam Ward


Nashville Line Combinations

---Mike Fisher-Martin Erat
---David Legwand-Patric Hornqvist
Colin Wilson-Craig Smith-Matt Halischuk
Nick Spaling-Paul Gaustad-Brandon Yip

Ryan Ellis-Shea Weber
Hal Gill-Jonathon Blum
Scott Hannan-Calvin Klein

Pekka Rinne

Game Anaylisis: Klein ends the scoring drought in the second period with a booming howitzer from the point. Carolina rallies back when LaRose scores from his faceoff circle after a fake pass to one of the n00bies. It has been an epic goalie showdown between Ward and Rinne until Legwand sends Hornqvsit a beautiful one time pass between the legs of Corvo for the goal. Cam Ward immediately turns around glaring down a prone Gleason behind the net. With tensions rising, Skinner gets a powerplay goal waved off because his stick wasn't low enough on a deflection. While throwing a tantrum, Jordan Staal gets injured in the process. Canes lose 3-1.

Post game comments:

When asked about the goal being waved off: "I thought the replacements refs were supposed to be gone yesterday".


When asked about Jordan Staal's injury: "Why do the Staal's always have to be the center of attention, I was a RFA too ya know?"


When asked about wearing a Radulov jersey: "You make a last ditch effort when you got nothing else to bring."

9/10, not bad. Too many regulars and not enough scrubs involved though, this is pre-season after all. Justin Peters with the start backed up by unexpected training camp tryout Dan Ellis would be my bet in net for us. Chris Mason for the Preds (which actually makes the odds of us getting shut out even more likely, being that he's a backup and all).

I was at the game. Can you believe how many people showed up with "Bring Back Sutter" posters and signs?

I know it's just the first game, but Semin really did look like a cancer out there. Floating around, not much effort involved, and when he did have the puck his offensive pressure wasn't enough to make up for an otherwise atrocious game. He better step it up, Jared Staal's look really good in camp and I think he's pressing hard for Semin's top line spot...

Tough loss, hopefully the aquisition of Iginla can start paying dividends straight away.

This is the NHL tho, one loss is nothing, as long as we're winning more down the road.

I'm pretty upset about the Buffalo fans who showed up just to smash those Dan Ellis bobbleheads in the parking lot.

Was I the only one pissed off by Skinner's 3 minor penalties?

Talk about an attitude change.

The weirdest thing is that the first two roughing penalties he got were for fighting with Patty Dwyer.

Not all that unexpected. The way Staal was looking at him all game when he was on the bench and then high fiving Dwyer when he got back from drawing the penalties made me think something clearly had to be up.

The replacement refs looked good. I'm thinking the NHL is going to be glad they went in that direction.

Although Nodl had 0 shots on goal, his defense play was very solid.

That was great when Weber hipchecked Tlusty into the crowd. He almost made me spill my beer. Not sure how Tlusty magically re-appeared on the rink though. That was odd.

On the flipside, I think we can all see why we shouldn't have been penciling Welsh in the 3rd Line Center spot. Can't wait to see Boychuk next game. I hear he's been working his tail off this off-season

Your lines are wrong. Gleason had a buzz on, got confused, and played the game as Scott Hannan.

I don't know if anyone noticed, but Paul Maurice and JR were sitting together. They were signing papers and shook hands at the end of the game.

Thank you for the critique and input. I clearly remember all of those events, besides seeing those pestering sabres fans.

Turns out that Ryan Ellis was only spotted on the bench wearing a Radulov jersey because he's injured.
