84 points and 7th place

Sunday's final: Wing 3 Preds 4
Game winning goal by Ryan Suter. Quite an entertaining game. Back and forth, lots of good chances, and a season ending injury for Erat. 90 seconds into the second period he was fighting for space with Lidstrom in front of the net. Weber shot a blast from the point that caught Marty on the leg. Found out later last night that it's a broken leg for Marty, and he is surely out for the rest of the regular season, and if we make the playoffs, probably a good part of the first round.
Also found out today that Legwand is done for the rest of the regular season. Awful news for the Predators. They've called up Mike Santorelli from Milwaukee. He had good chances while he was here earlier in the season, but we'll need him to play much better, which means he'll be under a lot of pressure in a top 6 role. I want him to do well; he's part of the future of this team and may even have a spot up here next year.
Still can't believe the Preds knocked of the Wings with what equates to 2 top 6 forwards.
We're 2 points behind the Blue Jackets and we head into their barn tomorrow night. We need Pekka to be absolutely outstanding. He can outplay Mason; I've seen him do it. The Blues are one point behind us. Yes, the entire central division is currently in playoff position. How awesome would it be the end the season like that? If we keep winning our games and the Blues win theirs, it could happen.
