Nashville @ Columbus

I'm on the road in central Ohio at the moment, about a half hour outside Columbus and doing a little reading about tonight's game. Preds netminder Dan Ellis seems like the story, what with what's went on the past few games.

After two subpar starts, Ellis was supposed to get the hook in favour of another rookie, Pekka Rinne, last weekend, but when Rinne's equipment didn't make it in time for the game, Ellis got the start and shined. Since then, he's played well in two wins, keeping Nashville in the running for the playoffs and just two points back of Vancouver.

We've got seats four rows behind the Preds bench, close enough to smell what's going on, so I'll try and blog from that vantage point if anything of note happens. Maybe not.

This BlackBerry experience has been interesting, but it's certainly tough to get into much detail when you're hammering this stuff out on a keyboard that's about two inches wide.

I'll have a much better look at the trip once I can get my hands on a real computer.

Enjoy the games - and if anyone knows where we can catch HNIC tomorrow from downtown Columbus, I'm all ears.

The Red Patch Boys (Toronto FC fans) are in Columbus this weekend so you should meet up with them. You'll definitely notice them on the town.

i've been told that R Bar has the Centre Ice package. i haven't been there for a while, so i can't confirm this.
R Bar is directly across from Nationwide Arena.
