Thursday's Dump & Chase: Why I Hate the Lightning

For those of you who are unaware, the Predators run a promotion with Dunkin' Donuts which awards each fan in attendance with a free donut should the Predators post a shutout at home. This has turned out to be the cheapest promotion that's ever been run, maybe in the history of sports, because the Preds have yet to accomplish this feat in the regular season. Those in attendance for the first preseason game against the Islanders got a donut. Congrats. I, however, was not at that game. I had one shot at the free donut…just one. What happened? Steven Freaking Stamkos scored with :46 seconds left in the 3rd period of a totally meaningless hockey game. Aside from the donut that was at stake. Just awful. And totally unforgivable. While a donut tonight is extremely unlikely (sorry, Carter), hopefully the Preds can exact some sort of revenge for the suffering caused way back in September.
