Quick Hits From The Crease 3-7-16
After stumbling against New Jersey, the Preds recovered nicely and got back to their winning ways vs Colorado with a 5-2 victory. If you wanted to get a preview of playoff hockey, Saturday’s matinee had everything in it. There was plenty of hard hitting, chirping and chippy play to make you think it was May instead of March.
Filip Forsberg continued his ridiculous play with another goal. Only Alex Ovechkin has lit the lamp more than Prince Filip since Thanksgiving.
When Nashville takes the ice tomorrow vs Winnipeg, it will mark four WEEKS since they last lost a regulation game. Remember when going four DAYS was an accomplishment?
Following a furious comeback, Minnesota fell short and lost to St Louis last night 4-2. The Preds continue to lead the Wild by 6 points for the top wild card spot, and now have a game in hand.
Monday’s game of importance: the Avalanche host Arizona tonight on NBCSN at 8pm cst.
