Weekend Linkage: Lapierre suspended, Tootoo on Twitter?

The Predators dropped a rough one last night to the Red Wings, but there's no need to dwell on that. I've got a truckload of news for ya this morning to get your mind off the game. 

Also, keep an eye out later today as I may be running a quick Farm Report on your favorite AHL team, the Milwaukee Admirals. Sneak peek: did you know that the Predators have a limited amount of call-ups until the Admirals are eliminated?

Follow after the jump where Derek Boogaard lays a dirty hit on Ryan Jones, Maxim Lapierre is suspended for his hit on Scott Nichol, and a Twitter account that may or may not be our own Jordin Tootoo...
