Game Day: Predators
Nashville brings their 14-10-1 record into Atlanta to square off against the 14-10-3 Thrashers. Both teams are lead by star defensemen (remember those Sutter and Weber guys from the Olympics?) and feature bald men behind the bench who apparently specialize in turning out winning records with budget basement rosters.
The Preds also come to the table with two vets whose best days may be in the past but are still dangerous in Steve Sullivan and J.P. Dumont. Dumont is best known as "and that other guy" in discussions of good players who have left Buffalo for more money and the chance to live somewhere that is not Buffalo.
According to Dan Kamal on the Ol' Twitterometer, "Looks as though Kane and Enstrom are fine for tonight. Pavelec in goal."
Will Chris Mason ever get another start in goal? Pavelec has won 7 of his last 8 games played including every game of the six game win streak and two games against the Caps with a .5 GAA against Ovechkin, Backstrom, Green, and Semin.
