Preds Rule!

Anaheim at Nashville

The mighty Ducks ain't so mighty anymore. And the Preds made some history. In their 6th trip to the playoffs, they finally got past the first series. From the Tennessean:
Nashville defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-2 on Sunday at Bridgestone Arena to advance to the Western Conference semifinals....The Predators outlasted the Anaheim Ducks 4-2 at Bridgestone Arena in front of a raucous sellout crowd to win the best-of-seven series 4-2 and advance to the Western Conference semifinals against an opponent to be determined.


  1. You MIGHT draw Dee-troit in the next round if the sticks fall into the right places.

    Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. ;-)

  2. Buck, I think I've heard you say that the Wings really step up their game in the playoffs so if the Preds draw them, it could be bad. Really bad. On the other hand, the Preds did pretty well against them in regular games this season, if that really matters at playoff time. I hope the Preds don't think they've won now that they've finally gotten past the first round. There could be a lot more hockey to play if they play hard and stay focused.
