Preds And Oilers “Open” On The Road

April 27, 2017

Last night, both road teams won NHL quarterfinal series opening games.

In the earlier game,  former Canadiens’ player, P.K. Subban had a goal and two assists while Vernon Fiddler had the game winning goal, as Nashville raised its ‘offs record to (5-0) winning (4-3) at St. Louis.

Only the Predators are undefeated among NHL teams in this year’s ‘offs after the Edmonton Oilers went into Pacific Division winning Anaheim’s home and defeated them (5-3) in their series opener.

The Pittsburgh Penguins, the defending champions, who visit top ranked Washington (Capitals) in a quarterfinal battle between the top two points teams in the “reg,” (blatantly unfair), and Predators are the only NHL teams without a home loss.

The following is not only meant not to offend but I truly do not want to see injuries and the one suffered by the Predators’ Kevin Fiala is one suffered by an upstart team, that has provided so much good so far in these ‘offs.

The title above “open on the road,” the Preds’ player named Fiddler (to say he roofed one, a hockey term would/should cause boos) and most of all, the show business, “good luck” term–“break a leg.”

Certainly sad and not funny is Kevin Fiala broke his leg but a show business and life term that supersedes all the rest, “the show must go on.”

 

The great Zero Mostel pictured above. Maybe not Peoria, but “Fiddler” does “play” in Nashville.
