As we indicated in our our post this morning Amanda DiPaolo pieced together the Pred's preseason schedule from announcements made by other teams. It was a good piece of investigative work.
The Predators officially announced the schedule this morning with the game times added. It will be good to see the Caps as a new preseason foe along with holdovers Atlanta and Carolina.
