Last night's game between the Nashville Predators and Edmonton Oilers was one for fans to forget and for the players and coaching staff to etch firmly in their memory in order to avoid seeing a recurrence in the future.

In retrospect, it was a "trap" game that no one saw coming. A couple of players admitted to "overlooking" the young Oiler team since presumably it was a whirlwind day where there was a game and then a quick overnight trip to play the team with the best record in the Western Conference in Minnesota before coming home for a Thanksgiving day off.

From all appearances, the day off came early in the first period of last night's game when the whole team came out flat. Barry Trotz took Pekka Rinne out of the game so not to expose him to that type of effort in front of him.

For the Preds, the only highlights were Jordin Tootoo's first goal of the season, Matt Halischuk's first fight in the NHL, and a goal by Jon Blum in the closing seconds. The low-lights were too numerous to catalog.
