It’s that time again, folks! It’s another gameday in Nashville as the Predators take on the Washington Capitals tonight at Bridgestone Arena. The game has a 7pm start time and should be a very entertaining one to say the least.
Quite the busy day at Centennial Sportsplex where lineups are formed for the upcoming pre-season games and decisions are made that will either land some of the on-ice talent a spot on an NHL roster or have them packing for more conditioning in either Milwaukee or elsewhere.

The Nashville Predators are sending three players back to their junior clubs today: Brent Andrews, David Elsner, and Austin Watson. Per the Predators Press Release we just received:
After splitting their historic double header with the Florida Panthers yesterday, the Nashville Predators fly north to Baltimore where they meet up with another southeastern division foe in the Washington Capitals for game 3 of this NHL Pre-season for the Predators.
Colin Wilson throughout the remainder of 2010-2011 for the Nashville Predators was, essentially, a healthy scratch. For anyone who attended last year’s practices at Centennial or any of the weekends’s training camp, Colin Wilson is a pacing Darth Maul, a caged animal, a ravenous wolverine ready to go out and chew up the competition with […]
Sometimes a broken leg can keep a player down for for more than just a few months, sometimes that leg is never the same again. In a positive change, that’s not the case for forward Cal O’Reilly.
Here are just a few tidbits from the players and coaches that I talked to throughout the first two sessions. I had to skip the majority of the third session as I had a bit of a headache that was creeping up throughout the entire morning. Expect some articles over the next few days that […]
