Rosters Released for Predators-Thrashers Contest Tonight

Note: There appears to be some confusion since the original roster was released, but it now appears that Pekka Rinne will play instead of Anders Lindback and Teemu Laakso, who would have been the seventh D-man, will not dress.

As expected, the Nashville Predators will place almost a full veteran roster on the ice against the Atlanta Thrashers at 7 p.m. at the Bridgestone Arena.

Anders Lindback will get another look in goal and Chet Pickard appears to be getting his first preseason action. For Atlanta, ex-Pred Chris Mason will play for the Thrashers.

Tonight's game should mark the first time that we see how actual forward lines and defensive pairings may shake out. Also, the Preds will hope to improve on their special team record that has gone 0-13 on the power play and 8-11 on the penalty kill in the three "evaluation" games.
