Just off Tom Callahan's facebook page: "Mueller up, smithson over to the wing for tonight vs. Buffalo". I wonder what's up with that, besides SK being out again??? Keep up the great work you showed last season, in camp, and with the ADS so far this season, Mules!!!!
Lindback to start, Mueller recalled, McGrattan the presumptive scratch.
Preds will need to get four lines rolling tonight to avoid the post-roadtrip lull and outwork the Sabres, who lost last night in Detroit.
Ryan Miller returns to the Sabres nets tonight, but has a very injury riddled lineup in front of him. Gotta bury our chances early and as often as possible to shake off the rust and rattle Miller and the Sabres.
Full 60 minute effort needed tonight. Remember our game in Buffalo last season when down two late, Geoffrion single handily forced OT and Marty Erat (I think) scored the OT winner to really cement our spot in the playoffs.
Barry Trotz vs. Lindy Ruff tonight...with all the changes in coaching staffs going on around the league recently, it's UNBELIEVABLE these guys have been in their positions since 1997!!!
The Predators called up Buffalo native Chris Mueller for tonight’s game. Trotz said Sergei Kostitsyn (upper body) is out. When asked about the length of Kostitsyn’s injury, which Trotz said he suffered in Calgary, the coach said this: “Don’t know and don’t care right now. I just care about tonight”
