The Nashville Predators couldn't hold onto a 3-goal lead against the Flames on Thursday night, losing 5-3. The coaching staff didn't dress forward Radek Bonk or defenseman Ville Koistinen in the game, opting to scratch them to the press box instead. Both players are considered more defensive, which could have been beneficial to the team in the third period. Both players are available on the Selection Sheet, but if neither of them have a solid role against one of the better Western Conference teams, they might not have much value in the pool at all.
On the plus side, both Jason Arnott and Nick Tarnasky returned to the Pred's line-up last night. Arnott, a Draft pick of John B., did make an early impact in the game, registering a goal, but couldn't help his team pull out the win in the end.
