Nashville Predators 3, Dallas Stars 2The Nashville Predators finally found a way to beat the Dallas Stars this season. The game went down to the wire when the Stars pulled their goalie, while on the power play. My recap was almost all done, and I accidentally clicked the X button. Of course, I couldn't retrieve it and it wasn't save. But, I still did a decent job on everything. Although, there will be no "Period By Period Summary" until much later tonight. So, I will tweet when it is available.

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette, His mentorship last season of rookie defenceman P.K. Subban was incalculable. On the rink, when paired with Subban, Gill was the fallback, dependable steed when his partner, a frisky colt, strayed or got into trouble; off the ice, Gill helped teach Subban how to be a professional.
Now Gill takes those qualities to Nashville to nurture young...
Gill Trade Sets Habs on Pick/Prospect Path The decision to move Hal Gill was made long ago when Montreal management was faced with the oblique task of deciding who they would have to part ways with should the season not go according to plan.
