Preds defeat Islanders

Ohhhh…Shiver me timbers, Tallulah! The Music City Sabre Cats march into the Barfy Center and boldly take a second, satisfying bite out of the Big Apple as they complete a 2 game New Yawk sweep. They battered and grilled the Fish Sticks 4-3 to improve to 2-0 on the campaign.

Arvi got things going in a big way with dazzling goal, as he sped up the left side one-on-one with Island Turd D-man Pulock, and proceeded to turn him into a joke by siphoning the puck between his own legs, blazing past, and then five-holing Gripes. It just gets prettier with each viewing.

In a bout where the Brooklyn Brawlers kept answering after each Preds’ tally, it was good to see the Men in Gold respond in kind. Eks-Factor registered his 3rd point in two games with a blister bomb from 40 feet out. Then Crazy Legs was rewarded for his offensive energy on a give & go with Turris with a resultant rrrrrrrripper for his first. And then, Arvi got the deuce on another give & go via a sweet pass from Joey against the grain. 

The Juice—-who will have an increased role this season with more starts—was decent in the crease, turning away 26 of 29 attempts. And the team D in front of him was particularly strong (out-blocked NY 16-7) in the final two minutes, not allowing a single shot on goal as the flailing fisherman had an extra attacker on the ice. 

The Smashcats out-hit ‘em 28-18, led by Rinaldo with a half dozen, and RyJo with 4 (good to see the big guy throwing his weight around in these first two tilts). 

So, the boys return to Smashville undefeated for their home opener this Tuesday against the Flameouts. Let’s greet ‘em with maximum mojo as the Central Division and President’s Trophy Banners from last season are raised to the rafters. Go Preds!
