Preds vs Blues Game 1 Projected Lineups

Preds vs Blues Game 1 Projected Lineups

Here are the lineups for tonight. Maybe. Most of this is guesswork. Amid injury concerns (Alex Steen, Craig Smith), possible returns to the lineup (Colin Wilson), and some new faces (Vladimir Sobotka), both of tonight’s forward lineups are up in the air. We know most of the pieces, but filling in the lines is somewhat tricky. On defense, things are little more concrete. And of course we know that the two hottest goaltenders in the NHL, Jake Allen and Pekka Rinne, will get the nod in the goal crease. Anyway, here are your potential starting lineups. For the Predators, based on tweets...

The Human Rocketship talks JOFA, Bridgestone, Rinne, and, of course, the sweep of the Blackhawks.

He talked about the series win over the Blackhawks, being a “huge fan” of Pekka Rinne, how Joey is “the brains” behind the JOFA line, and how much of an advantage it is playing in front of such supportive fans at Bridgestone Arena. Give it a listen here: Ellis also made a really interesting point about the series against Chicago two...

How to Solve Jake Allen

How to Solve Jake Allen

The Wild have to find a way beat the Blues goalie if they are to have any chance to salvage the series. St. Louis Blues goaltender Jake Allen has been arguably the best goaltender thus far in the playoffs. Only Pekka Rinne has a better save percentage, .979 to Allen’s .974, but Allen has faced over 20 more shots than Rinne. Many of those saves have not been spectacular (although his glove wave might make a couple of them seem like it), but that doesn’t really matter when he is keeping the Minnesota Wild to one goal per game despite facing an average 39 shots per game. He is avoiding...

Good fortune surfaced again for the Preds in the third period when Filip Forsberg...
