Thoughts, comments, or predictions on the game? BRING IT ON!
daze didn't play last night, and might not be playing tonight. i'd be shocked if schnabel played tonight, as well...and i don't think mason is DEFINITE yet, either...but we'll see. I think as long as Vokoun WANTS to play and IS ABLE to play...he should...but it might be a decent night to let him rest and give Mason a shot.
that game was frustrating to watch in a way i haven't experienced since this time last year. effortless, tired, passionless hockey on the part of nashville. they deserved to lose, and they did.
that doesn't make me any less angry, though..and i hope trotz raises all hell over this.
