I disagree. I think the defining moment for the franchise was a month later when Trotz **DIDN'T** get fired. Yes, the rest of the season ended horribly, but with that winning streak in Jan and Feb, he proved that he can make magic with the team. Even if we don't make the playoffs this season (likely), the team is starting to believe that it can. That's a huge step.
The Preds defining moment?
