LooKING Back:Tuesday night in Tampa Bay.... barf, cry, barf.
WHAT WE LEARNED FROM THE PAST GAME:Now we know why Tampa Bay ran up the score Tuesday night.
Never change, Tampa. Never change.
LA TOURISM BOARD:Instead of waiting 14 games like he did last season, Nashville Predators Captain, Shea Weber, scored his 1st goal of the season Tuesday night in the Predators 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers. This season, the Predators are celebrating their 15th anniversary of becoming a NHL team by struggling to score goals. Oh wait... that's what they do every season to honor the franchise!
Barry Trotz shows the number of goals the Preds average per game.People love to make fun of the Nashville Predators for being a hockey team in the South but over the past 15 years, they really have created quite the fan atmosphere at Bridgestone Arena. And that knowledge and excitement extends all throughout the franchise, especially the season ticket department, right? RIGHT?!?
That's right, just before NHL Training Camps opened, an email was sent out to season ticket holders that concluded with the now infamous signoff... "Go Perds!" And fans of NBC's Parks and Recreation everywhere... giggled uncontrollably.
I mean seriously... what sort of two-bit sports franchise can't even spell super important hockey related items on the emails they send out to fans?!?
To be fair to the LA Kings Community Outreach Department... it's been only 1 year, 4 months, 6 days since the LA Kings won the Stanley Cup.
