2-1-0 on an interesting week for the Preds. We had a dreadful first period last Thursday against the Leafs and Pred-offense-stiffler Jonathan Bernier. But a goal by Jones early in the second energized the Preds to put 4 past the goaltending wall to pick up our third consecutive win. We then returned home and got shutout by the New York Rangers and I know what you're thinking "But Ray, Lundqvist is a really good goalie". But not only did we face Cam Talbot, we only mustered 17 shots against the backup.
The week ended on a high note though, as Mazanec improved his record to 4-1-0 in a 4-2 win against Phoenix. Nashville looked really friggen good in the first period where they got three goals and had nine different players register a point. It was a painful final two frames allowing the Coyotes to claw their way back into it, but an empty net goal by the captain was the final nail in the coffin.
