Predators @ Penguins Game 2 Projected Lineups

New, 5 comments

Looks like we will see the same lineups tonight.

Going into Game 2, it doesn’t look like much will change in the Predators lineup, given that Colin Wilson will likely be out again.

There’s always a chance that Laviolette decides to throw more speed on the 4th line, which could slot Harry Zolnierczyk or Miikka Salomaki instead of McLeod, but I’d say that’s unlikely.

As for the Penguins, there may not be any changes either. One guy to keep your eye on is Carl Hagelin. Coach Mike Sullivan told media that Hagelin was a healthy scratch in Game 1. Given that he stayed on the ice for extra work today, that probably means he will be scratched again, but who knows.

The other guy to watch is Patric Hornqvist. He wasn’t particularly effective in 13 minutes on Monday and he is coming off an injury. Might we see someone like Hagelin in his place? Or someone else we didn’t see in Game 1?
