It may be preseason, but it feels really good to see the Predators pick up a win at home against Tampa Bay. Pekka Rinne performed well, putting an end to doubts of a questionable return after surgery. Predlines Staff Writer and philosopher Thomas Willis was at the game and gives his analysis of the game here.
In the game, Viktor Stalberg left with an upper body injury. He appeared to injure his right shoulder in the first period. He will be out for the remainder of the preseason. Hopefully, the Predators will have the top-line forward in the lineup for the start of the season.
Today, the Predators will go on the road to play the Washington Capitals at 6 p.m. for the fifth preseason game this year.
Eight days left until the regular season opener against the Blues and 13 days until Ryan Suter pays a visit to Nashville.
