Jack Daniels would be making so much money if they were a Preds sponsor, especially after games like this afternoon's Game 5.
They battled back and overtook the lead late in the 3rd period...and while on the power play...instead of playing 4 corners for 1 minute and 3 seconds...they allow the Blackhawks into the zone to tie it up. The game may as well have ended there. With 2 and a half minutes of PP left in the OT, it seemed as if the Preds were just waiting to hand the puck over to Hossa...which they did...and got out of the way.
What a waste.
A waste of time, of talent, of emotion, of energy - all for naught because we have the sorriest PP in the Playoffs - one that actually hinders us from doing anything positive whatsoever.
Yeh, I'm pissed. And Monday, the Preds have some making up to the fans to do by doing what Chicago did today: tie it (the series) up. Then they will win in Chicago, as they should have done today.
Easier said than done, but it's not improbable.
Kudos to Grebs for playing so well after not having been with the team since early March.
