Chris Mueller racks up more air miles heading back to Milwaukee
Hopefully, Chris Mueller has a good plan for freebies with the airlines based on miles traveled as he is headed back to Milwaukee the day after he came to Nashville to sit out last night's game with Vancouver as a healthy scratch. This is his third trip up and down to the AHL this season.
It appears to be a good sign that Patric Hornqvist may be nearing a return and that Mike Fisher and David Legwand have moved past their flu-like symptoms of the past few days.
Make the jump for the release from the Predators...
