The Predators are back at it tonight against the Florida Panthers.

Nashville Predators

The Predators handled the Hurricanes on Friday evening with goals from Rocco Grimaldi, Calle Järnkrok, and Austin Watson. Pekka Rinne returned to form with a gorgeous shutout. Kyle Turris was once again a healthy scratch. Will we see him in the lineup tonight or will there be another excuse?

Expect Juuse Saros in net tonight against Florida. He’s been very solid for Nashville, posting two big wins over the defending Cup champion Blues and securing one point in an overtime loss against Vegas.

Florida Panthers

Jonathan Huberdeau leads the Panthers in points with 31 (10 goals, 21 assists). Aleksander Barkov has 30 points (7 goals, 23 assists). Keith Yandle leads Florida defenders in points with 20 (2 goals, 18 assists).

In 20 starts, Sergei Bobrovsky has a 9-6-4 record and a .884 Sv%. After a rough start to the season, Bobrovsky has settled into the Florida crease.

Memories and Feelings

  • Hi, Brian Boyle.
  • Florida has lost three games in a row. They’ll be eager to grab two points against the Preds in front of their home crowd.
