Pre-season Game #4: Nashville Predators @ Atlanta Thrashers

The Nashville Predators resume their pre-season with a game tonight in Atlanta, putting their 3-0 record on the line against the 1-1-1 Thrashers.

Game time is 6:00 Central, with local coverage in Nashville on 104.5 "The Zone". There is no TV for tonight's game.

After the jump, we've got everything you need to get settled in as we follow the game in the comments...

For the bad guys, Blueland Blog provides the Atlanta lineup for tonight, which includes the new Ilya Kovalchuk - Nik Antropov line, along with Rich Peverley and (simmer down, Jeremy) Maxim Afinogenov elsewhere up front.

For the Preds, it looks like the top line is sitting this one out (not surprising with Sully's sore groin), as will the new guy, defenseman Francis Bouillon. This means that tonight's spotlight is, once again, on Mike Santorelli as he skates on the Legwand-Erat line. On defense, the picture is less clear as to who will play, with the exception of Cody Franson, who is out with a busted nose.

Last Thursday in Nashville, the Preds put a 5-0 whoopin' on the Thrashers, so it remains to be seen how Atlanta will respond in front of their home crowd at Phillips Arena.
