Sure, the puck doesn't drop until 9:30 p.m. tonight on Fox Sports TN, but we get to move our clocks back tonight, so you're getting an extra hour of sleep back anyway, right?
While waiting for the game to start, why not shop for a new Nashville Predators jersey?
Per Josh Cooper, Gabriel Bourque and Victor Bartley will be scratched, while Matt Hendricks is back in Nashville being evaluated after taking a hard hit in Thursday's game. That means the Predators are lining about as talented a lineup as they possibly can.
Will that be enough against one of the prime contenders for the Stanley Cup? At the very least, maybe the Preds will stay up and get lucky...
