Battle Of My Favorite Teams...Thrashers vs Predators

I hate it when my favorite teams play each other. My home team vs. my western conference home team...I guess at least one of my favorite teams is going to win. Best case scenario, we go to over time and Thrashers win the 2 points while the Preds take the 1 point to the west. The Preds were without their All Star and Olympic Gold Medalist, Shea Weber, maybe we could do it! Things never work out that way, do they?


Preds fans definitely represented. There were probably 50+ Preds fans there, pretty good for a Tuesday night!


Warm Ups! I decided to go on the Preds side for warm ups. Every time I go to Nashville I'm usually on the other team's side. Nashville's lighting is weird, too. I don't have many good Pred pictures.


Smithson looking around during warm ups.





Pekka Rinne seeing some shots.





Pekka doing a little dance.





The guys getting ready to take some shots.





My bigfoot, Jason Arnott. I can NEVER get good pictures of him, he's like bigfoot, the Yeti or aliens.





Chillin' with the boys.





A decent picture.





Smithson and Pekka
Smithson: Damn, I think we have more fans here than they do.
Pekka: I think you are right.
Smithson: That chick with the camera is cool though.
Pekka: Yeah, cute, too.





Careful, Pekka! Someone took a shot and busted the mask right off of Pekka's head.





I see you seeing me!





Jordan is a Jedi, too!





Belak don't need no stinking helmet.





Adorable!





Ellis waiting to get back in the crease.





Pekka in the net. Pekka had the night off, so he didn't warm up, too much.





Swarming the goalie.



First Period!


Ellis making a dramatic save.





Marty taking a face off.





Thrash trying to interfere with Dan's mojo. The hex didn't work.





Dan tracking the puck.





Antro using his big body to cause problems in front of the Preds' net.





Dan unmasked.





I think Dan is doing his impersonation of what the Thrashers do on the ice lately...take a dump.





Jimmy is smiling about something!

The first period was typical heart break in Blueland, the Preds were up 2-0. That's what can happen when you are outshot 12 to 7. Poor Pops had a HORRENDOUS give away that lead to a goal.


Second Period!


Joel Ward waiting for the face off.





The second period was bad enough with that Thrashers goal being waived off, but then this douche bag shows up. He' s on the phone loudly giving directions to where he is, so I know more douche bags are on the way. He's telling his douchebuds about how he got into a fight with a cop and spit on him. (great) I found out from someone else that had been nearby that he was sitting near the Preds' bench and leaned over the tunnel as the Preds were leaving and yelled "I @&$*ed your girlfriend in the @*&." Stay classy. He and his buddies were loud and stupid all night.





Moose hustling to get over to cover his right side.





Nice hustle, Moose.





Moose tracking the puck.





Kiss Cam! Well played Nashville, I expected nonetheless! Take note Buffalo and Rangers fans, this is how you do it!





Moose, how do you think the game is going?





How'd that first period go?





Johnny: There's my girl over there. She was the first one with an Oduya jersey.
Moose: Hey, that's my girl! She's been my #1 fan for years. She makes me signs all the time.
Johnny: I'm just saying...she bought my jersey.
Moose: Don't get used to it.
Don't worry Moose, your still #1!

Antropov got us on the board in the second period, and my man Johnny Oduya had an assist! Shots were pretty even with the Thrashers outshooting the Preds 9 to 8. We went into the third period at 2-1. It's a 1 goal game!




Face off!





Ellis stretching it out.





Ellis likes to hide in his net.





Get some, Slater!





Dan doing a little dance.





Get out of the net! You and Dan can play later.





Antro in the face off (groan).





Mac in front of the net.





Nik in front of the net again.





Hainsey and Nik in front of Ellis. I love the intensity in Hainsey's face.





I was really hoping for Pevs sake we would win, or he would at least score.





AGH! How did that not go in?


Thrashers lose 2-1. They did play a much better game than Sunday, though that's not saying much. They did actually look like they gave a damn. Keep it up guys, good things will happen!
