"My Take On The Preds"

Interesting Quote...

Sitting in my car and heard a Mike Babcock quote saying that going with his plan B (Chris Osgood) is not bad.

"He won 29 games and had the best goals against average in the league," said Babcock.

Wrong...Dan Ellis had the best goals against in the NHL...sorry Mike.

Updated: Whoops...this is what I get for writing a blog in the car in the parking lot while listening to the radio! Ellis was first in Save percentage not GAA...sorry for coming out and slamming Coach Mike there. Eating crow while egg is dripping down my face after removing foot from my mouth!

Heard Trotz on local radio this am and he said all the right things. Saying that the change in goal had more to do with Detroit needing a change than Hasek's play.

Tonight the Preds need to continue to set the tone physically. If the Preds can do that it will go a long way towards coming away with a win.

In response the Legwands play since he returned Trotz said that prior to game three he said the staff was in a quandary as to whether to play. They started him slow with the fourth line. They then saw him really playing well and not being winded. Leggy's return gives the Preds two solid scoring lines and gives the Wings more problems than games one and two.

Game starts at 630 tonight on FSN...go Preds!

I would love to see the Preds take down the Wings. Then the Sharks can face the Preds again. :) Go Sharks.

And then we can crush your playoff dreams too. Wouldn't it be grand :o)

Yes, that would be grand. But they might not even get out of the first round.

You guys are great. IMO Detroit got away with a hook on the winner and I apologize if I jinxed Dumont. That was a horrible giveaway on his part. When the Preds tied it up I was screaming like my team had just scored. OneTimer is right " Playoff hockey. There is nothing like it."
