SO HAPPY for the win. Great effort. Wore my Wings sweater on my last dog walk tonight and went down to the riverwalk to show it off. The fog was amazing and I thought this pic would fit with the New York theme tonight:
NJ was leading the Preds 2-1 when Nashville pulled their goalie with about 3 minutes left. With just over a minute to play Cammalleri broke in down the right side towards an empty net and was tripped as his sweeping chance laying down went wide. The referee skated over behind the net and emphatically began pointing to the back of the net.
Automatic goal. NJ wins 3-1 and Nashville has lost their 4th straight.
"...and as the sun set over Nashville, Predator fans still milling around Broad Street on a Saturday night to get dinner or maybe to hopefully celebrate an anticipated victory were left with an all too familiar taste. A taste familiar as hot dogs and potato salad in summer but now imagine those hot dogs had been sitting in tepid water all day and the potato salad had a sunburn. The taste of another loss to Detroit."

Congrats!! Bring extra batteries to take pictures of the cathedral that is Joe Louis Arena. After the game I think you should make the same choice we've all made at some point, American or Lafayette Coney Island. The Post Bar is cool and some players go there after games. I saw Chris Pronger, and assorted St. Louis Blues there long ago and got to try on Jason Williams 2002 cup ring. Maltby and Draper used to hang there long ago.
Oh, and if you go to Windsor Ontario you'll want to know the answers to certain questions.

Do you have any weapons? The correct answer is not "Sure, what do you need?"
