Predators Update, March 26 2009

Predators center David Legwand is doubtful for tonight's game against San Jose after taking a puck to the side of his face during practice Wednesday.

The team plans to re-evaluate his status today after some of the considerable swelling goes down from the area. So it's uncertain whether or not he's dealing with a broken bone.

This news comes from the Tennessean this morning. There's nothing like taking on the #1 team in the NHL with not one, but two hands tied behind your back, eh? Glennon speculates that Cal O'Reilly would be the callup from Milwaukee if Legwand can't go, due to his not playing last night for the Admirals.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, however, has that word already been given? "The news was bad before the game even started. Cal O'Reilly, who is ninth in the AHL with 69 points, received his second call-up of the season to the parent Nashville Predators."

Word this morning is that less than 1,000 tickets remain for the Sharks game; if you still want to get tickets (and like discounts), follow this link and use the special offer code "predators".

Next up, the Nashville City Paper outlines into the playoff experience that Greg de Vries brings to the team. He, along with Jason Arnott, are the only Predators with 100 or more playoff games to their credit.

Andrew's Dallas Stars page has your Western Conference playoff race covered. Last night the Wild won on the road over the Islanders, while the Colorado Avalanche just rolled over and played dead for the Anaheim Ducks, dropping a 7-2 nailbiter. You can also check out the chart at NHLPlayoffRace.com.

Grassroots News, a Manitoba publication, highlights the contributions of locals Jordin Tootoo and Vern Fiddler to the Preds playoff drive.

That's all for now, stay tuned for Legwand injury/O'Reilly recall news later in the day, and of course all the pre-game coverage as well.
