Unless They Break Team Rules Again, The Suspended Two Will Play Monday

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz, on a media conference call Saturday, said there is a “high probability” both Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn will return to the lineup Monday night with his team down 3-1 in the series to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Trotz said the Predators had a lot of chances in Friday night’s 1-0 loss at home, but several of his top players failed to finish. So he may re-insert Radulov and Kostitsyn. Both players were suspended for Game 3 after breaking the team curfew on the eve of Game 2. Trotz sat them out again for Game 4, because—like most NHL coaches at playoff time—he was not willing to change a winning lineup from Game 3.

The Predators managed 25 shots on goal on red-hot netminder Mike Smith in Game 4, but also had 14 missed shots.

Your cute little dream season is about over. The only thing left to wonder is what douchey t-shirt Vince (I never miss a meal) Gill is gonna wear.
p.s. Have fun this summer trying even a small amount of your ufa’s.
