Monday Means PredsOnTheGlass Tonight at 7:00 Central
Tonight's edition of PredsOnTheGlass Radio returns to the home couch, hopefully away from the technical difficulties we had at our first live remote at the Nashville Tweetup last Wednesday. We had a blast and are ready to do it again with a little different preparations. Be sure and tune in tonight at 7:00 Central.
Tonight's show will feature Ryan from the Red Light District again to talk about the playoffs. His ongoing daily analysis of the match-ups is first rate. No one else does it better,
We will also have Dirk Hoag, the Forechecker, from OnTheForcheck.com. Dirk spent a few minutes with us at the Tweetup, but tonight we will dig further into the man himself, his background, and current thoughts about the Preds and the playoffs. Here's what's on Dirk's mind today. Mirtle at SB Nation has started the 5K Twitter race and Dirk is currently fourth and needs your support. This is a Better reason to sign up for Twitter than Oprah. Here's Dirks sales pitch to Beat the Wings blogger. A late note here is Forechecker's look at the playoffs after all have completed two games.
Finally, we will have Eric Smith, Hockey Buzz's Columbus writer, on the show. I'm looking forward to hearing about the Jacket's first trip to the playoffs from an insider's viewpoint. I've been seeing Tweets from him at the morning skate so we will get the latest on the BJ's comback versus the Wings.
We will also keep you updated on the Boston at Montreal and Washington at New York games in progress.
John Glennon takes a look at the Predators free agents this morning in a story. Really nothing new to report. We still need to resign Sully, Ward and Zannon.
More later as the day progresses.
Buddy Oakes for PredsOnTheGlass
Jim Diamond takes a look at the Preds Ticket Push over at the Examiner.
The Predators site has a better story on the Ads going up 3-0 than the link I posted last night.
Paul McCann checks in on NHL suspensions and a few thoughts on the playoffs so far.
A rather interesting look at Nashville through pictures is here under Hockey Road Trip 09. This gem was noted by Mark at The View from 111 and is from the photographer that accompanied James Mirtle on his trip to Nashville.
More on the stupid move by NBC to disallow the viewing party at Mellon Arena over at Kukla's. Speaking of TV, Puck the Media has the local ratings for game one of each series.
On the international front the focus will turn to the World Championships starting this Friday in Switzerland but Team USA beat Russia last night to take the Under 18 World Championships.
Can't let a day go by without a Twitter story. Here's a few MSM folks monikers per Alanah at Canucks and Beyond.
Puck Daddy takes a look at the Flyers unofficial playoff song. It doesn't do a lot for me but it's not nears as bad as the Predators version of "My Town" video from a couple of years ago. I think it was a big reason that we bailed early that year.
SI has some hockey player look-a-likes here. Interesting
NHL Snipers shows AO "spying" on the Rangers morning skate.
Hockey Wilderness gives his take on Stan Bowman as a fit for the new GM for the wild. The Pred's Paul Fenton was thought to be in the running but no word that the Wild have asked the Preds for permission.
From our friend Dawn Scott, Milwaukee Admirals fan extraordinaire, "One more game to go!!! Remember Ice Hog fans: "I smell bacon, I smell pork, watch out Ice Hogs... I GOT A FORK!!!" Jackson really liked this.
In Contrast to an earlier note, John Glennon is now reporting that the Wild are indeed interested in Paul Fenton and Mike Santos of the Preds and have asked permission to speak to them.
