Pekka finishes with a shutout. What a beauty!
For you guys. We didn't play well, even with the healthy scratches. I'm excited about seeing y'all in the playoffs!
Elite Southern teams represent!
It's the NAS/CAR series NBC dreams about.
Wait is nbc hosting our series? Will we hear about the Pens all game??
Of course not, they'll make plenty of time for Chicago.
If he’s gone, he ended it the best. Motherfucking Pekka Rinne.

That glove tap. That fucking glove tap.
Rinne with the shutout. What a fucking stud man😭
I really need Pekka to win the cup.
I can't agree with this yet, obviously, but if you do wind up beating us I hope you go all the way. Pekka's had a hell of a career and I agree he deserves to lift the cup one time.
I know Nashville’s resting their big players too, but why not go full ham and bring up an entire AHL team if we’re going to do.. that
And for whoever’s first game that was, that was certainly a game to be put in
They still played Forsberg, Duchene, Johansen, etc. Really on Granlund, Saros and Josi I felt were resting. In comparison we had like a yes on the rest.
You conveniently left out Ellis, Ekholm, Kunin (who has been on a tear), Jarnkrok, Carrier, Haula (who has been on a tear), and Sissons.
I understand you wanna feel better about that result, but don’t pretend like we played all of our studs and you didn’t...
They played like shit. I’m not denying that. But they also didn’t play their best 3 defensemen, Svechnikov, Staal, and more. When Jordan Martinook is second leading offensive time skater you’re in trouble. This was getting our taxi squad some games - see Shore, Ryan, Keane and banishing Gardiner to it. Does this result suck yes. Do I think it matters. No.
Our leading goal scorer this year is a 3rd liner. You’re not gonna get any sympathy from Nashville.
I dunno maybe have better depth and you won’t loose to our depth.
You should enjoy your win, but let’s not pretend each team’s studs are of equivalent value.
I’ll take Josi, Ekholm, Ellis over Dougie, Slavvin, Pesce and I bet a whole lot of ppl in r/hockey would too.
Well we're about to see, aren't we?
Sure, but we have plenty of data now. If it was Josi/EkholmOREllis vs Dougie/Slavvin, it would be a lot tighter with good arguments for canes side of it.
But NSH’s Top 3 is better by most metrics.
I also only made this comment as OP said Nashville’s studs (that were out) weren’t of equivalent value.
Svetch and Staal were also out, each with more points than any Nashville player. But, again, who cares? One or the other team will win the first round, and that will be the better team. Statistics don't matter, winning does.
RemindME! 2 weeks
What up bud remember me?
I'm pretty new to following the preds but I gotta say even I'm feeling emotional seeing Pekka tonight.
This game may not have had either team's best lines but these last two games hopefully will really shift Nashville's mentality going into this first round. Should be a good series
I love you rinne
Pekka Rinne is my dad
Idk about y’all but I’m here to overreact
Same. I’m an NC State athletics fan also so I’m all for overreacting about Raleigh sports teams.
Probably not how we drew that one up.
Coincidentally, that's just about exactly how we drew it
I’m actually crying right now. Thank you, Pekka. That was for you
That was perfect.
Maybe we shoulda put Reimer in if this was the plan all along
nobody should ever doubt the importance of slavin, hamilton, or pesce ever again (but they will)

You can probably add Staal to that list
Slavin is the guy 3rd on the healing dps meter except most of his heals are the really clutch ones that keeps the raid alive
No penalties in the 3rd period.
*Press X to doubt.*
Instilling false confidence…
I like it.
Man, the Preds really are in your head aren’t they?
Playful banter my guy
I’d believe that if damn near every comment I’ve seen you make has the team in it.
Hey man, the Chicago guy brought it up first
Enjoying the offseason?
Easy big guy, it wasn’t a serious comment
I wonder what time Seguin and Benn’s tee time is tomorrow in Dallas? Weather look good enough to do 18 or just 9, ya think?
This on the the mildest of chirps you all need to chill
Some seriously sensitive Perds fans in here huh
Instilling, I think you mean
I’m not crying YOU’RE crying!
