All Ryan Ellis haters please stand up!

The Predators came away with another bonus hockey win against the Coyotes last night at Bridgestone arena.
The Coyotes usually give the Predators a good matchup and last night was no different. Even with Devan Dubnyk in net for the Coyotes giving the Predators they wanted which was a little disappointing. I was looking for target practice from the Predators against a guy who has me wondering how he is even playing in the NHL. A win is a win however and I will gladly enjoy it.
Ryan Ellis with a monster game and the1st star. 1 goal/shootout goal/2assists/18:44 TOI. In 6 games Ellis has 4 points and is a +/- 3.
Mike Ribeiro continues his steady play and finished with two points 1 goal/ 1 Assist/20:25 TIO.
Peka Rinne had several big saves and bailed the team out on numerous occasions. Peka only gave up 1 even strength goal on an odd man rush in the first period.
The power play. The Preds went 0/5. This will get them beat in the future if it continues.
Gabriel Bourque started the season on the top line and has become invisible with 6 games. 8:22 TIO the lowest on the team.
Last year after 6 games the Predators were 3-3 with 6 points. This year the Predators are 4-0-2 with 10 points.
The Predators have another tough test on Thursday against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Predators organization is really bending over and offering “free popcorn” to people who wear gold to the game. I am sure this will have the people who were on the fence about going tearing up HP printers to get tickets printed out.
The Predators need to make a statement Thursday against the Blackhawks.
Let me hear who you think will win on Thursday?
