Chatting with a Predators' blogger
Dirk Hoag, a blogger at Predator's blog ontheforecheck.com, took some time to answer a variety of Nashville questions. Here goes:
Q: J.P. Dumont (head) is out of the lineup tonight. What does that mean for the lines? Who takes his place and what do you expect?
A: Patric Hornqvist has stepped in on the top line and has performed admirably, with 2 goals and 3 assists in 5 games. He brings a different dimension than Dumont, in that he's more of a crease-crasher than a setup man.
