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.
No Rads for #Preds tonite. He says Trotz told him team will stick w winning lineup.— John Glennon (@glennonsports) May 4, 2012
Rads was obviously frustrated & disappointed but tried his best to say the right things in a brief scrum with the media.— Willy Daunic (@WillyD1025) May 4, 2012
Rads feels like he has practiced hard and done the right things since the incident. @1025TheGame— Willy Daunic (@WillyD1025) May 4, 2012
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?
