Whoo…That Was Close!February 20, 2008
With the game in hand and the ice tilted in their direction the Predators let the Edmonton Oilers nearly steal two points in Nashvhille last night. The Oilers scored goals in bunches and scoring three unanswered goals to take a 4-3 lead. The Preds answered back seconds later knotting the game at four a piece. JP Dumont finally rescued the Preds in the final minutes and then the Preds held on and took the two points to move into fifth place in the West. Yes…FIFTH place people!
The line of Arnott, Dumont and Radulov continues to hit on all cylinders. Dumont jumped right back in after missing two games with the flu and looked fresh.
Tootoo’s goal was beautiful! That line was scrapping and fighting for that goal and the hard work paid off.
Ellis was solid in net and only the fourth goal was soft…he should have had that one. The others were crazy bounces or major breakdowns from the D.
Question to all Pred fans:Eklund (over at http://www.hockeybuzz.com) and I got into a bit of a debate over Hossa and Richards. Who would you like and why?
Out Of Pocket: I will be out of pocket until at least Sunday as I am out on business…tow huge home games coming up for the Preds. Get down to the Sommet and support the boys.
