The Predators are prepared tonight for a hockey game vs the Bruins.
The Preds are always a tough out, and right now, they’re the best team in hockey, so have fun with that, B’s fans.
David Backes is going to make his triumphant return to the lineup tonight.
Ryan Donato has been sent down to Providence. Pastrnak had a ‘maintenance day’ during the week, but will play. Matt Grzelcyk will not. The team is being cagey w/ McAvoy – the rumor is a concussion.
Let’s do some lines.

The Predators are coming in at an impressive 10-2 record for a league leading 20 victory points. But that’s not what we’re really excited about — it’s the exciting return for Bruins alumnus, Matt Irwin! Zac Rinaldo is on IR, and wil not be appearing. Also, Dan Hamhuis will not be appearing.
