On the hockey front, I am pleased to say that my favorite Western Conference team, the Nashville Predators, will be facing the Phoenix Coyotes in the second round. The Predators were the first team to finish off their first round opponent, “sinking their teeth” into the Red Wings. The Coyotes, a team that I will now become familiar with, took care of the Blackhawks.
If Pekka Rinne continues his superhuman play as goalkeeper—and the Preds unleash some of their firepower—Nashville should win the series. Still, I’ve heard that the Coyotes goalie, Mike Smith, is no slouch!
The cats and the dogs get going tomorrow night!
