Friday's Dump and Chase: Neal before Zod

New, comments

Last night James Neal had his coming out party, scoring the Predators only three goals. It was an exciting moment for Neal and the Nashville fanbase who witnessed a convincing win against one of the league's best. While much of the focus has been on Neal's hat trick, we shouldn't over looked that last night was a team win. The Preds will look to carry that type of play into Saturday's game against Pittsburgh with hopes of their great start bleeding into a long road trip.
