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.
