Predators Update, March 18 2009

As the team prepares for back-to-back games in Anaheim and San Jose over the next two days, here's what's being said about the Preds this morning:

The Tennessean chips in with a "players relax on a day off" story. John Glennon, the day-to-day beat writer for the team, appears to be out of the office for the week, hence the lack of hard-hitting news, which is unfortunate timing, given the emergency recall of Patric Hornqvist yesterday.

In his morning radio spot on 104.5 today, Preds play-by-play man Pete Weber said that J.P. Dumont will not play tonight due to injury. To be honest, I'm wondering if he just misspoke and meant to refer to Radek Bonk instead, because nobody elaborated on the statement, and this morning's City Paper story mentions that Dumont is expected to play despite getting shaken up late in Monday's win in Los Angeles. I can't find any other mention that Dumont's unable to go. (UPDATE: I've since gotten confirmation from Pete that this was unintentional, and that he meant Bonk)

Pete Kotz at the Nashville Scene notes how the media is starting to pick up on Pekka Rinne's outstanding play.

And lastly, we have to give a nod to Martin Brodeur for setting a new career wins record for goaltenders. The New York Times digs into the question of whether he's the greatest of his era, running him up against Patrick Roy and (my pick) Dominik Hasek.
