Monday afternoon notes: Preds rookies set to battle the Lightning

Alrighty, gang, the puck drops shortly after 5:00 p.m. in Florida, although we won't have any live coverage of the game (outside of a few tweets, from what I understand).

Litter Box Cats (SB Nation's Florida Panthers blog) has the rosters for all 3 teams participating in this mini-tournament, so stop on by and say hi.

Tonight, though, the Rookie Preds will battle the Lightning, who dropped a 4-2 decision to the Kiddie Kats to start things off yesterday.

For now, follow after the jump for some afternoon hockey news...
