Preds survive Hurricanes, tornadoes

After defeating the Hurricanes 1-0 on Tuesday night, the Predators and their fans were told that they couldn't leave the arena due to tornado warnings. NHL.com reported that thunder claps and tornado warning sirens were audible. Mid-way through the third, with the game still knotted at zero, there was some talk that perhaps they would evacuate the building and suspend the game.

In my game recap, I mistakenly reported that the Capitals had leapfrogged Carolina into first place in the SE division. What I messed up was that the standings had already been updated. As of now, Carolina still has a tenuous one point lead in the division and the Caps have two (not one) games in hand.

They will use one of those two games in hand tonight against the Flyers. Carolina fans will be reluctantly pulling for the Flyers.
