Friday's Dump and Chase: Starting Off Right

New, comments

After three months of hearing about new systems and promise of offense, it was exciting to see the Preds storm the Sens' zone. It was a successful season opener and the team, Forsberg especially, gave Nashville a taste. Of course, it's only one game and the season is a marathon. The Sens aren't exactly popular playoff pick this year either. Nevertheless, the win was convincing and I'm excited for the next eighty-one games.
