“They’re not happy we’re down 3-1 in this series. When you’re a player and been a good player for a long time, you want to be on the ice. You don’t want to be in the stands, so they’re back in the right mind-set that they can make a difference here.” – Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz on Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn, who have been benched for the last two games after missing curfew last week. Both players are expected to return to the lineup Monday against Phoenix.
