The Predators held a Blue

It can be about as close as it will get with no the pre sure of two points at stake.The Predators held a Blue & Gold scrimmage on Sunday afternoon at Ford Ice Center, a training camp tradition for Head Coach Peter Laviolette and his staff. It really is the first chance of camp for the bo ses to see their players – the majority of which were prospects and minor-leaguers, with some NHLers sprinkled in – in a game situation.Eeli Tolvanen, Frederick Gaudreau, Joonas Lyytinen, Filip Pyrochta and Pavel Koltigyn (two goals) all found the back of the net over the day, a best way to impre s those watching from above. But the scrimmage is more than just about scoring goals – it provides a best opportunity for participants to get the blood flowing before the exhibition slate beginsVideo: Weber talks scrimmage and preseason”Games like that always help going into preseason,” Preds defenseman Yannick Weber said. “It’s good for us players to get an actual game in us and get a feel for what’s coming next.”What’s next is a flight to Florida on Monday morning in advance of Nashville’s annual preseason doubleheader against the Panthers. The two will face off twice on Monday – once at 2:30 p.m. CT, the other at 6 p.m. – with a majority of the Predators lineup getting a chance to shake off the summertime rust.So, what do players like Weber and Colton Si sons look for out of that first game action since the spring?”It’s just certain situations, certain reads, the timing, just kind of things you haven’t don’t in a few months,” Weber said. “Something like today, you can get the rhythm, realize what you can do, what you can’t do, and it can be also a game where you can make some mistakes and recognize those habits you want to get rid of.””I just wanted to get my legs under me and play confident, see the ice well and make some plays,” Si sons said. “Hopefully, I’ll be playing quite a bit in the preseason, and I just want to go out there and prove my worth again, show what I’m capable of and keep getting better.”Video: Si sons talks Blue and Gold GamePerhaps the “it’s just like riding a bike” analogy is the ideal comparison here. A profe sional hockey player isn’t going to forget how to skate during the offseason, but they’re not going to be as sharp in September as they will in April, either.So, the Preds will take off for the Sunshine State in search of that feeling once more – and a pair of victories.”Today was a good start against your own teammates Austin Watson Jersey , and tomorrow, with the split squad game, it’ll be another pace,” Weber said. “It’ll be a little bit quicker than today, and we definitely want to get some wins tomorrow, so I think it truly is just the next step you can take as a player and prepare yourself for the regular season.”
