Saturday's game at the Sommet Center brought Pekka Rinne's second shutout of the season.... but the real star that night was Carey Price. He stopped 53 of 55 shots, and was downright incredible. Plus, he stopped outside the arena for a gaggle of fans seeking autographs can anyone say awesome?
Before the game, Jordin Tootoo's dad was standing next to the silent auction table and signed a ticket stub, then called us back, and gave us a pen and a pin bearing the name of his nation. Incredibly nice guy....
Ok... but here's the real story:
The Preds started the game with a lot of energy and never let up. There was never any doubt that this game was all about them, if Price had been off this would have easily been a 5-7 goal game for the Predators. They were right where they needed to be about 99 percent of the time, and the funniest moment had to be when Shea Weber sent a hard shot at Price, who went straight in to self-preservation mode.
Each player was on... no complaints at all.
Short and sweet wrap-up, huh?
Lets go Preds!
