For all of you that thought the series between the Nashville Predators and the Phoenix Coyotes was going to be boring, game 1 anything but boring! The Phoenix Coyotes won game 1 of their best of 7 series against Nashville with a 4-3 overtime win.
The game had it’s wacky bounces, it’s huge hits and it’s amazing saves. Goaltenders Pekka Rinne and Mike Smith did a phenomenal job in net but in the end there has to be a winner and last night it was Phoenix. Ray “the Wizard” Whitney scored with just over 5 minutes left in overtime to beat Pekka Rinne. His goal will definitely be on the highlight reel! Smith stopped 39 out of the 42 shots to earn another post season victory.

I know this series is missing the history and rivalry but after last night’s exciting performance I will definitely be tuning in on Sunday for game 2!
