Road warriors

Let's hear it for the Preds! Going undefeated on multigame road trip is impressive, especially three games in the greater Big Apple area. Last night's 4-3 shootout victory is the Preds' fourth in a row, so they've gone from ice cold to red hot in one week's time. Here's the AP story on the Devils' site, too.

It was nice to see Jason Arnott tally against his former team, as did Martin Erat, who again looked solid throughout. Erat also netted the lone goal for either team in the shootout. I am hoping that the end of the third period will teach the Preds that they can't sit on any lead, no matter how much time is left. Coach Peterson is quoted in the Preds' recap story, and he's right: They definitely laid back over the last several minutes of the period. Surrendering a 3-1 margin in the final two minutes is ugly, but at least Nashville recovered and reclaimed the win in the shootout.
