Predators Game Thread #67: Washington @ Nashville

The Plague is ravaging the Predators locker room these days, and John Glennon reports that Dan Ellis will be your starter in goal as Pekka Rinne is suffering from flu symptoms (it's so bad that Drew MacIntyre has been called in from Milwaukee to back up Ellis). Even Mrs. Forechecker's taken ill this afternoon, so I might well have to catch this one from home (a real shame, as my son, who just started playing the game a few months ago, was excited to see Ovechkin tonight). Tonight's game is in HD on FS Tennessee.

Some pre-game reading for you: Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post tells us about Caps coach Bruce Boudreau's attempts to reverse a recent offensive drought.

Codey at Section 303 wonders why the Predators are so accepting of Alex Ovechkin's enthusiastic goal-scoring celebrations, while they used to dog Alexander Radulov for doing the same when he was a teammate. A fair question indeed...
