Pregame: Red Wings @ Predators - 4/14

Now outside the playoff picture looking in, the Red Wings visit the Nashville Predators tonight looking to regain control of their postseason fate.

The big news from Nashville is that the Predators are expected to debut Swedish forward Filip Forsberg, acquired at the trade deadline for Martin Erat.

Jimmy Howard will get the start in goal and you can expect at least one change on the blue line from Friday's loss to the Blackhawks, and possibly a change up front.

Stupid stat of the game: The Red Wings are 1-1 in Nashville in April regular season games all-time.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD.

Just announced... Kyle Quincey out, Brendan Smith in. Zetterberg not practicing but expected to play. Eaves likely out.

This should be new topic, but my feeble brain....Anyway, just some stuff I'm thinking about:

Will the return of Bertuzzi help the team? Samuelson? Who would they replace? The team can't afford too much experimentation in these last 6 games, seems to me....

A family member commented that the Wings are probably missing the play of Tomas Holmstrom, too, and I commented that I think I've noticed that there are fewer (no) goalie interference calls (I haven't seen any in any of the games I've watched, Red Wings or others, and there are plenty of opportunities to call it, seems to me) since Holmstrom is out of the game....

I am impressed with the play of the Wings' youngsters...I kinda think they had two of their best games just before the return of Franzen and Filpulla (but I don't remember who the opponents were)....

The return of Bertuzzi and Samuelsson only helps if the right people are scratched to make room, IMO. I don't know that that will happen.
