It's been a lil while - I seem to have fallen into the hole of blogging only after games - something I will have to change soon...perhaps in June ;D.
The Predators have done it: they've won their first playoff game on the road...and win they did. A scoreless 1st, a swarm of a 2nd by the Blackhawks gave Taxi Kane the first goal of the game. Then J.P. Dumont happened in the 3rd...twice. The Predator went into overdrive in the 3rd, creating turnovers in their favor as the Blackhawks did in the 2nd. Niemi was pulled not once, but twice in the final minute and a half of play...resulting in not one, but two goals for the Preds (Smithson; Erat). Let's let'em play 5-on-6 as much as they want with those odds!
This has been the season of the OT point making a difference and the post-season of statistical upsets thus far. As a fan of the dark horse team, I'll just say this: let's keep pissing on everyone's hushpuppies!
