IIIiteracy: Jets Beat Wings! Preds Delete Things! Avs Brought Down! Blues Wear Frown!
Tonight’s Conference III action is good news, bad news, bad news, bad news.
First the good news:
Clearly the reason the Wings bolted Conference III is that they feared the juggernaut that is the Winnipeg Jets, which swept the season series against Detroit with a 3-2 shootout win.
The pattern is full:
Things did not go as well for the Preds and Avs against their Eastern Conference opponents. Nashville and Colorado lost to the Isles and Hurricanes, respectively, both of the Stupid, Ugly, Dumb Metro. A visual representation:
The 3-1 loss by the Preds was the team’s third in a row, but at least they scored. A reason to celebrate!
That tweet was, of course, deleted, because some people hate harmless fun. Sticktap to our buddy Sam for the screencap.
The Blues lost, too, falling 3-2 to Phoenix on an OEL OT winner, but St. Louis still has 76 games to recover.
