Captain Jason Arnott is out with concussion-like symptoms. The Preds get Scotty Nichol and David Legwand back.
The Wings are up 3-2 in the series and can clinch today with a win. A win for the Preds means a trip back to Detroit for Game 7 at The Joe on Tuesday.
Puck should drop around 2:20 CDT.
I absolutely have no feel for how the team will play after the dagger-in-the-heart loss in OT at The Joe Friday night. Ellis played a career game Friday with 50+ saves, and like Trotz said, it’s too bad the effort was wasted in a loss.
So, we’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
Here’s to writing about this several hours from now in a celebratory mood.
