The Morning After
After a short night's sleep, things appear no brighter for the Predators's playoff hopes. The stark reality of SportClubStats computer which shows that the Preds have a 14.9% chance of making the playoffs makes it clear that there is a about an 85% chance that we've seen this year's version of the Preds on home ice for the last time. If we sweep the final two games, our chances increase to 69.6%, but that is a tall order at this point.
I really wasn't prepared for the season to end this quickly as I had full confidence that Barry Trotz had a never ending supply of rabbits to pull out of his hat. Maybe the Preds are just teasing us by doing it the hard way so that the playoffs will taste even better. I hope that is the case.
I'm leaving for a quick business trip to Newark, NJ for the rest of the day and tomorrow but will be back in time to watch the Preds and Wings tomorrow. I'm not sure how much internet I'll have so until the next time, Go Preds!
