Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Nose to the Grind

New, comments

The All-Star Game has come and gone and the Preds got back to the grind last night. It wasn't a pretty game but a win is a win at this point of the season. During the first period the Preds seemed to be working through their post-break rust/dust/energy draining ectoplasm/whatever you want to call it. Let's hope they leave their heavy legs in last night's first frame because there are two more big division games coming up. And oh yeah, Martin Brodeur retired.

A man puts his nose to the grind. It begins to bleed then another man looks at it.
