No pinching required, this is real

Six game winning streak

Let that sink in for a minute

The Nashville Predators are on a six game winning streak. This team is playing some really, really good hockey right now. Pekka is lights out, and our offense is showing sparks. We're scoring on the powerplay. Hell, Erat had a 2 goal game against DETROIT. Legwand scored a shorty. It doesn't get better than that. Throw in Belak taking a stupid penalty for "hooking" Jared Boll in the man junk against the Blue Jackets, and I've been pretty entertained for the past few games. It's been quite enjoyable sitting in Wendy's seats three rows from the ice. Friday is my last game there, and we're playing the Blues. "How epic is that going to be?" you might ask. Jenn is sitting with me, so pretty damn epic. That's for sure. There is going to be a ton of "That's hot," "Mchotty," and many other musings throughout. All I ask it that no one smush Kariya too hard. My heart can't take it. I can't wait for this game. It's been on my radar since the season started.

Some bad to go with the good:

Weber is in the midst of an 8 game goal scoring drought. Kariya is on an 11 game goal scoring drought. What the hell guys?!

Sulzer was sent to Milwaukee in favor of Franson, who is terrible in my opinion. He looked awful against Detroit. He is too slow. It would be best to send him back to Milwaukee and let him work on getting his game up to NHL level. Sulzer is already there. We all know he can play, and it sucks that he's been sitting in the pressbox.

Preds vs. Avs tonight at 8 central
Make it seven, boys

  1. Yay winning streak! One more item to add to the list of things it's probably slightly inappropriate to say I'm thankful for at dinner tomorrow ;)

    Looks like Weber at least was listening tonight.
