Wednesday's notes: Preds fans react to late-night disappointment

If you didn't stay up late last night to catch the game, first go take a look at the highlights, and be kind to those bleary-eyed Predators fans this morning, as a promising evening turned sour in the final minute. For post-game reaction, check out See Puck City, What the Puck, Section 303, Brandon Felder, and Preds on the Glass.

This evening, be sure to catch HockeyBuzz Radio. Paul McCann's guests will be former Jack Adams Award-winning coach Ted Nolan, and Globe & Mail columnist Stephen Brunt, who has a new book out, "Gretzky's Tears" . You can catch the show at 6:00 p.m. on 560-AM in Nashville, or via I'll post a link to the podcast later this evening.

After the jump, we've got your morning news & notes...
