Barry Trotz speculates about Pekka Rinne's timetable on the injured list
Interesting <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timbits">Timbits</a> of information in the Caps' coach presser tonight.
The Washington Capitals just shut out the Philadelphia Flyers tonight, thanks to Braden Holtby's 21-save shutout. For some reason, many of the questions asked to Barry Trotz in the postgame presser were about Friday's game.
A rather intriguing piece of information made its way over the Twittersphere during that time. From Alex Prewitt, Capitals' beat writer for The Washington Post:
Trotz just said he thinks Pekka Rinne will be out "a couple weeks."— Alex Prewitt (@alex_prewitt) January 15, 2015
@OnTheForecheck He just dropped it into a scouting report of Nashville. That's all he said.— Alex Prewitt (@alex_prewitt) January 15, 2015
Why does Barry Trotz think this, and where does he get his information? Well, aside from the obvious, Trotz was on record of speaking to Nashville's general manager David Poile earlier.
Barry Trotz spoke to David Poile today. David told Barry, "Beat the Flyers. I used to hate them."— Adam Vingan (@AdamVingan) January 15, 2015
Stay tuned for coverage.
