The Nashville Predators will host the Boston Bruins down quite a few players because of injuries, but this morning’s optional skate points to the light at the end of the tunnel.
Predators GM David Poile did throw a little cold water on the situation with a dash of reality that Subban has a ways to go. On Jan. 1, it was estimated that he would be re-evaluated in two-to-three weeks, and Poile told The Tennessean that it will probably come “closer to three.”
Nashville faces a five-game road trip starting on Saturday, so while Subban’s absence is expected, the Predators have to hope for the return of one or both of Neal and/or Arvidsson.
Update: Hey, good news for Nashville; Arvidsson returned tonight. How about that.
