According to John Glennon’s afternoon update over at the Tennessean, Ville Koistinen is set to play tonight as the Predators take on the Avalanche in Denver. Typically, that would mean a benching for Kevin Klein, as the other five defensemen have played all 35 games so far for Nashville. But, in a fit of wisdom that only be attributed to my sage advice from last week...
All season long we’ve seen a battle between Ville Koistinen and Kevin Klein for a spot in the lineup each night. I’d be interested to see one of the Gregs (Zanon or De Vries) sit down for a game, so VK and KK could both play, which might provide a boost to Nashville’s pop-gun offense.
It sounds like tonight we just might see that take place. Quoth Glennon:
Trotz left open the possibility of the Koistinen-Klein switch, but also said he’s ``not happy with one of his veterans,’’ so there’s at least a chance someone besides Klein might be sitting.
Any bets on how the pairings will look tonight? Personally, I think a VK/KK pairing could be pretty dynamic…
