Here’s an interesting turn: The Nashville Predators are playing the Phoenix Coyotes for the right to go to the Western Conference finals.
BOTH teams have been threatened with moving to more fertile pastures in the very recent past.
Tonight, Phoenix won game 1 in overtime on a Ray Whitney goal by a 4-3 score. The Coyotes…who I believe are owned by the NHL…hold a 1-0 series lead. The Coyotes just eliminated the Chicago Blackhawks, while the Predators finished off the Detroit Red Wings in five games.
By the way, BSP did not have a post in honor of Detroit superstar Nicklas Lidstrom, a first ballot Hall-of-Famer and one of the great defenders of all time. He may have played his last game this spring. We’ll fix that soon enough.
