Jason Arnott returns tonight vs. Columbus

New, comments

We have surprising news reported by John Glennon today, that Preds captain Jason Arnott will return to the lineup for tonight's critical game:

``I skated hard the last couple of days and felt pretty good,’’ Arnott said. ``I wanted to see how I felt this morning after the plane ride and after skating (Friday). I felt pretty good. I said I’d give it a whirl this morning and it felt okay, so I’m going to try tonight.’’

The urgency of the situation – the Preds are one point out of eighth place with four games remaining – played a part in Arnott’s decision to return as well.

 ``If we’d have won (Friday), it woud have been a little different,’’ Arnott said. ``But under the circumstances and the way I feel, I want to try to come back and help.’’

This is a huge boost, Preds fans. If you're going to the game tonight, get ready to bring the noise!
