There are fireworks in the San Jose-Nashville series and I'm glad I went to both home games here in Nashville!!!
A brawl, 6 ejections, 16 goals, 1 suspension, all in 2 games. Tons of bad blood. Coaches ragging on each other. Accusation aplenty. THIS!!! IS playoffs.
Go Nashville. Nashville in 7... winning it on home ice.
Oh, and the birth of a superstar. Malkin who? Radulov has 3 goals, 1 assist in 1.5 games (he got ejected 1/2 way through one).
I think nashville wins this one because of Arnott. Last year, Thorton dominated the Preds along the boards, but so far, every time Thorton is on the ice, we have sent out Arnott's line. Thorton is bigger, but it is quite obvious while watching them along the boards that Arnott is the stronger man. Thorton, the Sharks #1 weapon, has been a non-factor, while everyone on Nashville, except Kariya has been stroking it. Forsberg with 2 goals, 3 assists, Dumont with 4 goals, Radulov with 3 goals.
I'm excited, as you guys can tell.
