Warmups are under way here for Game 2 between Tampa Bay and Nashville at the Florida Rookie Tournament.

The starting goalies tonight are Chet Pickard for the Predators (2008, No. 18) and Pat Nagle for the Lightning. Nagle, who played his college hockey at Ferris State, was undrafted but signed a two-year entry level contract with Tampa Bay.
 
Behind the bench for the Lightning will be Jon Cooper, coach of AHL Norfolk. Nashville will be coached by new Milwaukee coach Kirk Muller. In a bit of an oddity, both AHL affiliates share a common nickname, the Admirals.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
