Okay, sorry for the bad play on the anthem words. Two points from the 2 game trip to Toronto/Montreal not bad considering all the injuries team is dealing with now. Great effort in loss to a good Canadiens team last night. Were it not for 2 fluke goals by Canadiens, a 4 point trip(2 wins) was very possible. Here are the highlights as I see them:
* Welcome to NHL Alexander Sulzer- the prized defenseman had a solid debut and played well. Great pass to Santorelli late in the game set up a nice scoring chance.
* Great effort considering Preds were missing 2 of their top 5 players in Arnott and Weber. Like I said above, were it not for 2 bad bounces on Canadiens goals, Preds would have come away with 1 or 2 points from the game.
* Legwand/Erat continue to have bounce in their step and creating good offensive chances.
* Steve Sullivan having no major setbacks and with each passing game looks better and better.
* Would like to see Santorelli get a goal so he doesn't start to press and feel pressure of a trip back to Milwaukee if he doesn't.
* Beating the dead horse- I still think a trade involving Ellis and a defenseman can bring some offensive help.
