The winner of Game 7 tomorrow night will win the right to play the Hamilton Bulldogs, after the Montreal affiliate defeated the Manitoba Moose 6 seconds into the 3rd overtime period Monday night.
Now THAT is a game 7 for the ages.
The Bulldogs outshot the Moose 57-30, but Moose goaltender Eddie Lack was outstanding. (Does this scenario sound familiar?)
Drew MacIntyre was the winner for the Bulldogs, and Dustin Boyd scored his first of the playoffs for the dramatic OT win.
Meanwhile in Music City, as you’ve probably seen referenced on Facebook and on the Preds blogs and twitter feeds, the Preds came up just short, losing 2-1 to the Vancouver Canucks.
Will the Admirals get some reinforcements? I’m inclined to say that it’s likely, but we shouldn’t count on it until we see a press release or see them on the ice. I seem to recall that a couple of years ago, Antti Pihlstrom was on our clear day roster, but never actually came back when the Preds were done. If they do come back tomorrow, hopefully they’ll all be mentally and physically tough enough to keep truckin’ for another huge game.
Per Josh’s lead in the comments section…..assuming we get Mueller, Halischuk, and Geoffrion back, how would you like to see the forward lines?
