Monday’s Dump and Chase: The Brink

Game 6 is tonight...try not to fret, folks.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

A Monday like many others, but a Monday like no other in which our season rests on Game 6 in Manitoba. We’ve seen some Game 6s before. It’s not a new thing.

The Predators absolutely have the skill and talent to win a crucial Game 6. The problem lies is this: will the regular season Predators show up tonight or will the “devil-may-care” Predators skate onto the ice in Winnipeg? Do they want to keep skating or do they want to book a tee time?
