Nashville Predators to stick with Game 3 lineup tonight: No Radulov or AK46

GLENDALE, AZ - APRIL 27: Alexander Radulov #47 of the Nashville Predators battles for the puck in the corner with the Phoenix Coyotes in Game One of the Western Conference Semifinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Jobing.com Arena on April 27, 2012 in Glendale, Arizona.

Today's big news being tweeted from the morning skate at Bridgestone Arena confirms what Barry Trotz had been hinting at in the media over the last two days, that he'll stick with the formula which led to a victory in Game Three, and avoid making any roster changes.

So... good news for Colin Wilson, Matt Halischuk and Jordin Tootoo, certainly. Bad news for Andrei Kostitsyn and Alexander Radulov that they can't earn their way back into the lineup yet.

It appears that the majority of OTF readers agreed with this decision yesterday. Will it pay off tonight, though?
