Answering The Bell

Posted 11:36 PM ET | Comments 5
Answering the bell...that seems to be exactly what the Preds Thursday night in Ottawa with a 6-5 win over the Senators. Every time that they were challenged by the Senators they answered.

The Preds jumped out to a quick lead with a early powerplay goal in the first minute of the game. Ottawa would answer and tie it but instead of folding or laying back the Preds would charge ahead to the lead again. This, truth be told, is not something that us Pred fans are use to seeing. It was great to see this team fight for the lead so hard.

I can't say enough about the play of our big line tonight. Jason Arnott (a pair of assists), JP Dumont (a goal and three assists) and Martin Erat (the game winner and two assits) all played great games. I am going on record to say that this line right now is playing better than any other line in Predators history. They are clicking and their chemistry is great.

Tonight was also the night of our D-men getting involved in the offense. Dan Hamhuis, Greg De Vries and Ryan Suter all chipped in with goals tonight. All of these goals were heads up plays and about being in the right place at the right time.

This was not Predators hockey. This is not the game plan that Barry Trotz planned. This is not the tempo game that these Predators play. This was a huge win. A win that, I would wager, not too many people thought we would win.

Standings: Tonight's win puts the Preds back in the playoffs at eight in the West with 26 points.

BOG Approves Preds: Great news...the BOG approved the Preds sale. No lets get some butts in those seats!

If deVries scores, you just know we are destined to win.

Pathetic game on both sides...Refering was horrible. Alfie's penalty in the opening minute was a farce he never even touch the d-man with his stick. Same can be said for the too many men on the ice penalty that the linesman called.I give Nashville credit for the win, but they didn't win because they outplayed Ottawa. They outplayed Gerber more than anything..

Dawg - I don't think you can look at any of the goals last night (with maybe the exception of the big uncontrolled rebound by Gerber on the first goal) and really blame either goalie. These bucks were bouncing, there was traffic and pucks were getting tipped. This was a wild and wacky game and we were lucky that time ran out. Another ten minutes on the game clock and this could have been a 12-11 game! It was WIDE open!

Lots of funny bounces where pucks go in the net, that's for sure.

Yeah we didn't play Ottawa. That explains the odd-man rushes, alright. Gerber was lucky it didn't end up being 10-5 with an Arnott hattrick.
