Storylines: Based on yesterday’s practice, David Krejci will remain between Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron. Chris Kelly centered Milan Lucic and Rich Peverley. Don’t be surprised to see Krejci and Lucic reunited at some point today, though. Both players need each other to be at their best… Nathan Horton will miss his seventh straight game today. There is no timetable on Horton’s recovery following his setback… The Predators feature two former Boston University teammates in Colin Wilson and Brandon Yip. Nashville claimed Yip off waivers from Colorado… Gord Dwyer and Kevin Pollock will be the referees. Shane Heyer and Brian Murphy will be the linesmen.
