I guess I can handle 6 points out of a possible 6 points. I got my wish for both the Titans and Predators. They both gave me plenty of highlights to choose from this week. I definitely wouldn't mind having this problem every week.
Here's last weeks winner.
A. (Predators @ Wild 10/28) Jerred Smithson's goal at 10:44 in the 3rd. These moves came out of nowhere. And for the game-winning SH goal?! Smithson has come up huge in the past few weeks. (True fact: Jerred Smithson taught Alex Ovechkin his legendary toe drag)
B. (Blackhawks @ Predators 10/29) Joel Ward's goal at 14:53 in the 2nd ( Francis Bouillon, J.P. Dumont). Ward can thank Bouillon for sliding this perfect pass right where he could just tip it in. Ward did do a nice job finding a way to sit alone in front of the net.
C. (Stars @ Predators 10/31) Steve Sullivan's goal at 3:17 in the 3rd ( J.P. Dumont, Dan Hamhuis). The whole team did a really nice job of battling back all night. Sully got the wrist shot in the tiny crease. Dumont, and it seems like I've been saying this all year, directed the puck to the open man to get the score.
D. (Stars @ Predators 10/31) Patric Hornqvist's goal at 10:59 in the 3rd ( David Legwand, Dan Hamhuis). Nobody on this team deserves this goal more than Hornqvist. This line seemed like it was out on the ice for 10 minutes and finally got rewarded for their effort. Question: Is Patric Hornqvist this season's MVP so far. If not, who?
Hopefully we'll be able to get something done this week without Shea Weber. This will be a big test for these young defensemen.
