Vancouver spared no one on the Predators roster tonight as they let Nashville have it with a 4 goal first period and a 5-1 win. Nashville, now dropping 4 straight games (2-3-1), haven’t been able to find any sense of cohesion or chemistry since the first two periods of the New Jersey game nearly one week ago. How many games will the streak last?
Powerplay – 0 for 4, 0%
Penalty Kill – 2 for 10, 80%
Best Play of the Game: Matt Halischuk gets a sweet feed from the end boards and ties the game at 1 early in the first period.
Worst Play of the Game: Shea Weber earns a double minor, 2 minutes for boarding and 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct, early in the third period. It wouldn’t be very surprising if he gets a phone call from Brendan Shanahan here soon
My Three Stars:
#1: Daniel Sedin – 1g, 2a, +1
#2: Henrik Sedin – 1g, 1a, +1
#3: Anders Lindback – 23 saves on 24 shots. Not taking anything away from Luongo, but Lindback faced as many shots in two periods than Luongo did in two periods and most came from powerplays.
I’m trying to stay as positive as I can and the only thing I really have for you is this:
We’re not even 10% of the way through the season yet
Just keep that in mind and we’ll see you again on Saturday afternoon. Expect our Predatorial game preview hopefully late tomorrow night! Looking for something to do before the game on Saturday? Drop by the Nashville Flea Market at the fair grounds and tweet me to let me know you are there! I won’t be signing autographs, but you can vent to me about all your Predators woes and thoughts
Stay frosty, friends.
