Sunday night's Predators-Flames game was one of the more enjoyable to watch for Predators fans. After Jerome Iginla scored, the Predators scored four unanswered goals to give the Preds a cushion that folks at the Bridgestone Arena could enjoy for a change.
Barry Trotz discussed the Calgary comeback that led to two Flames goals in the final period to make it a closer game and said that all it took was a "2% letdown" from everyone on the ice to let the Flames back into the game before Sergei Kostitsyn's hattie put the game out of reach with 30 seconds left.
I have to admit that I was pulling for Jerome Iginla to score his 500th goal when the Preds had a "comfortable" three goal lead. I saw Hank Aaron hit his 500th home run on July 14, 1968 and would have loved to have seen Iginla hit 500 goals.
