Today's Predators news kicks off with more recent developments on the Nashville sports radio scene.
Tonight was one of those nights that can help boost a team's confidence, as nine Nashville Predators made the score sheet, three Preds scored their first goal of the season, and the team blew open the game during the second period.
The party atmosphere tonight at Bridgestone Arena was in the second period, as Nashville Predators winger Sergei Kostitsyn left the game with an apparent leg injury.
Can the Predators close ranks in their trademark fashion and eke out their first win at Bridgestone Arena this season?
