Thursday's Dump & Chase: Tonight, Revenge Will Be Ours!

New, comments

For Tuesday? Oh no, no, no. Who cares about that? I'm talking about Tampa's last visit to Nashville in the preseason, September 24th, 2013. In case you don't remember, Steven Freaking Stamkos scored a goal with 46 seconds left in the game. What had been a 2-0 shutout, turned into just a 2-1 win, costing all those in attendance a free donut. We wouldn't get another crack at the (free) tasty treat until April, when Pekka finally delivered against the Coyotes. Mr. Stamkos will not be playing tonight, but hopefully the Preds can exact some measure of revenge on his teammates.
