Saturday's Dump & Chase: Way Back When

New, comments

Does anyone remember way back in October, the 11th to be precise, when the supposed rising Juggernaut of the West barreled into Nashville, their eyes already gleaming with Stanley Cup silver? The Predators smacked the Dallas Stars 4-1 that night, and the two teams almost mystically swapped trajectories from that point on. When the best hockey team in Texas comes back into town today, let us all just take a moment to enjoy the warm fuzzy feeling of that early October day. It was the start of something big, something big that continues tonight.
