Game night against the Desert Dogs as the Phoenix Coyotes roll into town. The Yotes come in with a 3-7 record in their last 10 games; the Predators sport a 5-4-1 record. Phoenix sits in the 14th spot with 59 points while Nashville occupies the 11th spot at 62 points. Gretzky's squad has shown they can play good hockey- witness their great start to this season. The Preds have shown they can play outstanding hockey and win games against the best in the league. For the Preds to capture and essential, nay*, a CRITICAL, two points tonight, they must dance with what has brought them success. Win the battles on the boards and in the corners; throw shots on net; and crash the crease. Score by committee if you must, but by all means score. Gotta shoot the puck and play sound D. Game 2 of this important 5 game home stand faces off tonight at 7:00. Center Ice has the only television coverage; 104.5 will have radio coverage.
* I have been trying to figure out how to get "nay" into a blog post for some time.
