Predators vs. Ducks: We win!!!

My son and I were able to use some tickets from our neighbors that couldn't go to the hickey game last nigt (thanks, Ray!). The Predators beat the defending champions, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, 4-2.

The win was great, but, perhaps even better, we witnessed a singular accomplishment: Jordin Tootoo notched his second career Gordie Howe Hat Trick (a goal, an assist and a fight in the same game). Jordin Tootoo is a very popular player with the Nashville Predators and has been since he was drafted in the amateur draft six years ago. In part because he was and continues to be the only Inuit player in the history of the NHL, and he's an exciting player to watch -- he hits often and hits hard.

Jerred Smithson added a short-handed goal in the final period to ice the win. Go Preds!!
