Not for the Faint of Heart

WOW!! For the first time this season, the Preds pull the goalie and score at the end of the game. With three seconds to go Jason Arnott scores on a rebound to tie the Blues at 3. Steve Sullivan scores the only goal in the shootout and the Preds take a 4-3 win over division rival St. Louis. A huge two points as the Preds now stand at 55 points and keep the Blues at bay.

Two goals by the Preds D (Hamuis and Klein) and the goal that tied the game scored by Jason Arnott. The offense continues to struggle as the top two lines can't pot a goal until the last seconds of the game. For the Preds to continue to advance production HAS to come from Dumont, Sullivan, Legwand, Erat, and Jones. The top lines have to bear down, take the shot, and get the dirty goals. It is imperative that this team start better in the first period and for the top lines to produce as we continue the march to the playoffs.

Resiliency and heart were shown tonight. Believe in yourselves, boys, and play the kind of hockey that you can play. Boston in town on Saturday night, and it will take a total team effort to beat the beast from the east.
