The Predators are FAST. Faster than the Sabres and they gave the Leafs trouble all night. Also giving the Leafs trouble tonight was a lack of discipline that resulted in 10 powerplays for Nashville and predictably a 4-2 loss. The Leafs got goals from Pony and Kilger and for the first time this year lost in regulation when either of those two had scored. As always, former Leaf Steve Sullivan killed them with a goal and an assist. So many penalty kills was good practice for Saturday's game against the Pens who scored 5 PP goals on the way to a 8-2 drubbing of the Leafs five games ago.
Meanwhile, on A-Channel, the sens announcers are hilarious homers. Komisarek got called out for repeated face washes, "whenever he gets near a sen his hands go right to their face", and for not fighting Neil. Neil had the last laugh as the sens helped the Habs down the standings with a 4-1 win. These two teams meet again in Montreal on Saturday.
