Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Game of Hockey

New, comments

We win and we know things, that's what we do.

In the game of hockey you either win or you die lose and in the month of November the Predators won, and they won a lot. Nashville may never be the kings in the North (because that's not a real thing in the NHL) but they might just be proving themselves as real contenders for the Iron Throne Stanley Cup.

If you miss Game of Thrones as much as I do and are tired of my terrible references just watch this introduction video Colorado put together last night. It's the only thing they won last night. #YeahThankYou

Brace yourself positive Nashville Predators news is coming...

This has to be an awkward situation for the Penguins. The two-goalie system has not worked out well for them. That's not to say it will fail for all teams, but it's something the Predators seem to be speculating with Juuse Saros and Pekka Rinne. Hopefully when the time comes for Rinne to bow out, it's done gracefully.
