To help tide us all over now that the Preds' season is complete, let's take a look back at some of the highlights from the season gone by, working our way up to #1 on a daily basis.

Once or twice a season you'll see a play come along that you just can't help laughing at, a moment of pure joy that goes above and beyond the competitive aspect of the game at hand to become an indelible part of your favorite team's lore. Just such a moment came on March 3, as the Preds played at Vancouver.

Late in the third period, with Nashville up 1-0, Patric Hornqvist made an aggressive forechecking move to chip the puck away from former Predator Dan Hamhuis, leaving him all alone to walk in on goal. With plenty of time at his disposal, he then put a wicked deke on Roberto Luongo and stuffed the puck home to give Nashville a 2-0 lead, the kind of highlight-reel play that kids dream about while emulating their NHL heroes. It was so good that Sam fittingly entitled his recap for that game Hahahamuis:
