Preds top Canucks

The Preds continued their hot streak on the road last night by hanging on to win 3-2 in Vancouver. Nashville yet again surrendered a 2-0 lead in the third, but Steve Sullivan made an incredible play to follow up on his own breakaway attempt and score with just over five minutes remaining. The pattern of relinquishing leads (four out of the past five games) continues to be a concern, but a win is a win. The Preds (7-3-1) are now alone in first place in the Central Division, and they take on a tough Edmonton Oilers team (7-4) in Alberta tonight. Edmonton is 6-0 at home this season, and Nashville is red-hot overall (7-0-1 since starting the season 0-3) and on the road. Great timing for what should be a great matchup.

The Canucks crowd booed Tomas Vokoun at every opportunity last night. I tuned in late and couldn't understand why, but apparently he may have "embellished" an early goaltender interference call by falling to the ice. I didn't see it, but two Canucks bloggers had opinions to share: Amanda and, ahem, Flow.
