07:32 AM ET 10.04 | When asked how his his hip felt after Nashville's season-opening loss to St. Louis, Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne gave a quick answer. "Good," he said without much expression or tone. A clearly dejected Rinne was chased midway through the first period after allowing three goals on six shots. Not all of the goals were his fault, but it was Rinne's first start after offseason hip surgery, and until he plays his first full game, questions will linger about his recovery. Rinne did not play a full preseason game, and hasn't gone a full 60 minutes since last April. ... When asked after the game if there was any worry about Rinne's hip, coach Barry Trotz said the word "zero" three times. But he said he hadn't decided if the Predators' top netminder will start [Friday] at Colorado.

always liked the feel of it. Okay, let me cghange that...good song....great RECORD (big difference)
And the backstory is, the song was written by a band member ( Left Banke I believe?)about the lead singer's girlfriend, on whom he (just 17 at the time) he had a major crush.

I concur but a SV% of .500 and GAA of 18 will get you noticed. :-)
