Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Brace Yourselves

Playoff Predators, questionable last minute trades, and deadline anxiety are all coming.

The Nashville Predator's fanbase reacting to a Playoff Colin Wilson sighting, and Filip Forsberg being an absolute super human on ice skates. As told by this gif of Colin Wilson.

Buffalo blew multiple leads last night, allowed Filip Forsberg to tie the game, and then win it in overtime. I repeat the Predators won in overtime, after killing off an overtime penalty, with multiple broken sticks.

Yeah, it's been a great few days of hockey for the Preds. While the rest of the league anxiously awaits the trade deadline, we're all just soaking in the glory that is Prince Fil, and the most impressive winning streak we've seen all season.
