Know the Enemy: Predators vs Flames Preview

The Nashville Predators (29-31-10) continue their west coast swing Friday in Calgary where they’ll face the Flames (28-34-7) for the third and final time of the season.  

Tonight’s big story will be the Debut of F Kenny Agostino.  The rookie forward wrapped up his college career last week amassing 56 goals and 76 assists in four seasons with Yale.  Agostino was the centerpiece of the Iginla trade to Pittsburgh last leason.  It looks like he will debut on a line alongside Monahan and Colborne. 

With the Predators being all but mathematically eliminated from the playoff race, it seems that they’ve decided to shake things up a bit.  It looks like Calle Jarnkrok will make his debut doning #14 and looks like he’ll play in the middle of Bourque and Smith.
