Tuesday's Dump & Chase: The Sissons Sessions

The hated Columbus Blue Jackets are in town.

The Predators play at home tonight against the Blue Jackets in preseason game #5. There should be plenty to keep you entertained. Marek Mazanec played Saturday night, so is it Juuse Saros' turn? Will Josi return to the lineup, and if so, will he be paired with P.K. Subban? Speaking of defensemen, will we see Seth Jones?

It all goes down at the Bridge at 7 PM. Be there.

Predators' Filip Forsberg becoming more than goal-scorer
AV brings a solid spotlight here. I'm sticking to my guns that Forsberg doesn't need to be on the penalty kill anymore. He's too talented to be spending almost 2 minutes of ice-time every night 80 feet from the opposing goal.

While I still don't really get why Nashville bought him out, I guess now is as good a time as any. Tough final game to play in the NHL though.
