Word on twitter is that Salomaki may be in tonight. I would love to see that, he's had bad luck this year.

The above lines were from the Preds pregame release. We will see if Salo comes back. I hope he does and Fiddler sits!

As confirmed as possible. Saros started last game and didn't play very well.

If the play of the goalie last game dictated the next games starter, Rinne would have at least 25 fewer starts. I'm sure Rinne will start, but they haven't had an actual practice since last game and no one in the know has chimed in.

Can't be sure what Laviolette is thinking though. He's putting in Hunt and Salomaki, two guys he didn't trust (Salomaki only because he's rusty) before the playoffs were clinched.

Who is Brad Hunt?

I'm only half joking.

I watched three or four of his games in St. Louis this year, he's got some offensive skills for sure. That said, he's small and rather poor defensively.

I think coach hinted at this when he said he wanted to get some guys in the lineup he hadn't seen.

Watson, Bitetto and Fiddler scratched, Neal and Weber still injured. PAP, Hunt and Salomaki in.

This game was supposed to be on NBCSN! The local birdcage liner says that the Bruins will be on instead.

When I cut the cable some day in the future and they ask why, I will mention this betrayal.

No it wasn't. You are thinking of Thursdays game at Dallas.

Preds/Isles should be a Wednesday Night Rivalry game next year. It makes about as much sense as some of their other ones.

Yeah Rinne only has 18 regulation losses all season but there are 25 games where he was so bad he deserved to be benched....

Haters gonna hate...

Not a good period at all, especially defensively. Hopefully we wake up in the second...

Cool, today I learned that a team can't win a game where a goalie played poorly. Also, apparently goalies can't play poorly if they lose in a shootout or overtime. Please, educate me further, I'm just a lowly "hater".
