Game 4 Practice Update: Craig Smith Likely Out
The bozos in orange dropped the hammer on your dreams of a sweep, but the Preds are still in the driver's seat. Going up 3-1 tomorrow would be HUGE, but it looks like it will have to happen without Craig Smith.

Wasn't Shea Weber listed as day-to-day in the playoffs last year? Just sayin'.

That may change.
A tiny part of me wants to scream FIALA TIME!!! but the rest of me is pretty sure he'd come unglued and get into all sorts of nonsense with Perry and the boys.

So he's day-to-day but if there's a "void" I'm guessing tomorrow won't be a day he plays.

Let's take a look at what's going on with the stupid Ducks...
Not that it is news or remotely shocking but BB essentially confirmed that Freddie Andersen is in for Game 4.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) April 20, 2016
Yeah, not shocking. Now...can the Preds actually make him work?

How important is Game 4?
Ah. Game 4 is almost upon us. My favorite. The ultimate swing game. Difference between 3-1 and 2-2 is pretty massive.— Robby Stanley (@RStanley247) April 20, 2016
I checked this out and it's actually true.
