Updated Programming note: Eric Kent will be on from Admirals Short Shifts instead of Ryan Miller.
After a couple of weeks off for Pred's games we will be back with a new edition of POTG Radio tonight at 7:00 Central.
This week we are thrilled to have Natalie Darwitz, the Captain of Team USA in Women's Hockey. With the Olympics a few weeks away we will find out how the team came together and what to expect at the games.
We will also have Ryan Miller from Admirals Short Shifts to take look at how future Predators are performing at the mid-point of the season. With the recall of Colin Wilson and Cal O'Reilly last night it will be interesting to see what they have to say about Wilson's progress.
Please join us live or on the podcast after the show.
In Pred Nation...
The biggest news on Sunday for the Predators was broken by Ads Short Shifts last night about the return of Colin Wilson and Cal O'Reilly to the Predators. It was then beaten out by a bigger story that Colin wasn't coming, or that they may or may not send him today. Anyway O'Reilly is coming and we'll see what happens next.
Bryan Mullen reported earlier in the day that Joel Ward and Marcel Goc were questionable for Tuesday's game at Columbus. Someone either got better or the Preds will go with what they have against Columbus tomorrow.
Bryan Mullen has a good story on Cody Franson this morning at the Tennessean. In my opinion, Franson filling the sixth D-man spot has been one of the top stories of the year.
Jim Diamond has his weekly Preds prospects round-up including the news that Taylor Beck was the CHL player of the week.
Section 303 had a new edition of the 303:30 on Saturday. Filmmaker Tommy Haines, who made Pond Hockey, was the primary guest. They also had a big announcement about an upcoming event. Check out the podcast for details.
Ryan at the RedLightDistrict writes Jason Arnott a letter calling him out for his recent disappearing act. Ryan makes several good points that would be tough reading for the captain but it needed to be said.
Preds101 starts the week off with a preview of this week.
Forechecker has the story of the green guys in Vancouver. Dirk also went on Thom Abraham on Friday to discuss enforcers in hockey. His audio clip has been added to his prior article.
Mark has his weekly View at 111 (not from). Confusing.
In Milwaukee, on the ice, the Admirals had two shootout victories in San Antonio over the weekend. For the story of Saturday's and Sunday's games Short Shifts has the story.
Around the NHL...
Last night's BTR show from Chris Wassel and The Program was one of their best episodes ever. They had Carrie Milbank on for over an hour and had a great interview with her on a wide range of topics. This podcast is a must listen where you will find out is Carrie would like to share a cab ride with Patrick Kane. Her answer will astound you. It's not what you would hear on NHL Network.
The video highlight from last week was John Tortorella and Larry Brooks going at it once again. I love this stuff.
