Wilderness Walk: TRADITION!

Fish tale: How the catfish toss came to be a Predators thing

"You're frustrated, you're (angry)".

It's ironic, perhaps, that the Stanley Cup Final's officiating crew is probably under fire more for its lack of calls despite the excess of extra-man advantages in Pittsburgh's Game 2 rout. You get the rest, which is obvious with the day off.

Waddell is now the face of catfish in Nashville, and doesn't need Little's Fish Company's help getting one. "I feel even more confident now that I've had a night of rest", he said.

Why are they in Predators jerseys?

Whats the most important thing he has learned over the years?

They smash cars adorned with the opposing team's colors and logos outside the arena. Two goals went off teammates and into the net, but it has not been the inspiring performance that the Predators and their fans are used to from the big Finn.

Which is why sequences like this are what makes players like Bonino so valuable during the playoffs. Pittsburgh won despite a 37-minute shot drought in Game 1.

Look for the Predators to break out to an early lead as they continue to have an edge in territorial play. He has appeared in only one playoff game, but finished the regular season with 13 goals and 28 points in 67 games.
