Bright & Early: Preds Nation Edition

Good morning, Nashville. We’re a little brokenhearted this morning over the Preds’ loss to Vancouver in Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals last night, ending their glorious playoff run for 2011. The Preds fell 2-1 to the Canucks at Bridgestone last night after one of the hardest-fought series we’ve ever seen, and though we’re all pretty bummed this morning, Nashville hockey fans couldn’t be more proud.  With the best record in the NHL, the Canucks will move forward to play either the San Jose Sharks or the Detroit Redwings in pursuit of the Stanley Cup.
