The Nashville Predators are shuffling their goalies around a bit, as Jim Diamond at the Examiner breaks news that the Preds are sending backup goaltender Anders "The Giant" Lindback to Milwaukee tomorrow, to be replaced temporarily in Nashville by Jeremy Smith:
Smith is expected to officially be recalled from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League Friday with Lindback being reassigned to the Predators top developmental affiliate in order to get in some game action.

Anders could certainly use the work, as the schedule looks reasonably spread out for the Predators over the next week, so Pekka Rinne should be able to handle all the games.
