Predators 4, Penguins 3 (OT - SO - 2-0)

So what happened?
Nashville is a good team and the Pens, while they played better, did not play a complete hockey game. They seemed to let up in the second period, and it cost them two points. Nice to come out with one, but there was another chance to get the lead in the division that was blown.

Who scored?
Crosby (42), Cooke (12), Orpik (1)

Any surprises?
Orpik scored a goal! The best part was that the shot was from the blue line and it was wide. It was only because Dan Ellis tried to stop it that it went in at all.

Any change in the standings?
One point is better than none.
Division: 2nd (one point behind New Jersey)
Conference: 4th (one point behind New Jersey)
League: 7th (tied with Colorado, Vancouver and Ottawa)

Who's next?
The Olympic break is here. No game for a few weeks.

  • As The Wife likes to say, Gonchar is The Man. He led the team in power play minutes, short-handed minutes and was second (to Orpik) in even-strength minutes.
  • Dan Ellis was very good for most of the game.
