What a nailbiter

Make that a seven game winning streak.
The second period last night against the Avs was the worst period I've seen the Preds play in awhile. It looked like they got a little cocky, and Colorado took joy in slapping them in the face. Despite blowing a 2-0 lead, the Preds squeaked out a win in overtime. Sucks that they gave away a point to another Western conference team, but at least they walked out with 2 points. That's all that matters.
I think Shea must have read my blog last night because he unleashed the cannon. He blew one past Anderson to tie the game at 3. No more goal scoring drought!
Kariya, on the other hand, must have missed me calling him out. The drought extended to 12 games without a goal against Dallas last night. The Blues did win in a shootout though. They're spending Thanksgiving in Nashville in preparation for the game on Friday.

Hope the boys are enjoying their Thanksgiving with family. Enjoy the day off, and come back to the rink ready to play tomorrow. It's gonna be a tough one.
Mason vs. Rinne
Erat & Legwand vs. Kariya
Brewer vs. Weber
God, I wish I didn't have my foot so deep in both camps. But I'm a Preds fan first. So let's make it eight boys!


  1. I feel so bad for Kariya. He couldn't buy a goal right now :(

  2. So I guess Kariya was listening too. He just wanted you to be present when he scored. Clearly you have acquired some kind of magical ability to bestow goal scoring :)

    (I really hope that Nashville's third jerseys aren't going to become horribly unlucky like Pittsburgh's have)
