good/rough night for Kariya

So i was at the Preds game last night for a great win over San Jose.
I was going to just talk about a few elements, but then i hit the Preds site and they had some great pictures of everything

First, Radulov scored his first goal..

and delivered what i think was his first big hit…

Poor Paul Kariya had a rough game though.
First he got decked while scoring a goal…

Then he got cross-checked by Thorton after the play was dead…

Then he got decked by a hard cross-check right into the boards and Toskala at the end of the game by McLaren…


In related news, I just found out that Paul McCann, the official PA announcer for Predators home games, well known hockey blogger, and commentator on WNSR 560 – actually has a day job working with me! Well, not exactly with me, but in the building. He works in consumer sales, I work in higher education sales, but hey – i saw him in the cafeteria. I’ll have to go up and talk with him sometime.
