Stanley Cup Playoff hockey is back in Dallas, and the Predators are hoping to spoil the party.
Games 3 and 4 between the Preds and Stars are set to take place over the next three days, and it begins tonight with the third installment of the Round One series. Nashville's depth has already been tested, and that will continue to be the case with the news that Wayne Simmonds (lower-body, week-to-week) and Brian Boyle (appendix procedure, week-to-week) will both miss some time for the club.
The Predators are confident with the pieces they have in their locker room, however, and with Game 3 just a few hours away, the group is ready to go, as is a stick named Frankie.
Here are the best quotes from the Nashville locker room ahead of Game 3 in Texas.
