Radulov to play tonight in Pittsburgh

Radulov Poile

Alexander Radulov will make his long-awaited return to the Nashville lineup tonight in Pittsburgh, according to multiple reports.

You know the story by now — Radulov had 26 goals and 32 assists with the Preds in 2007-08, after which he bolted to the KHL where he’s starred the past four seasons. But now he’s back in the NHL, and on a team that appears to be a contender for the Stanley Cup.

The 25-year-old Russian skated with center David Legwand and winger Patric Hornqvist during yesterday’s practice.

Nashville’s coming off a 6-3 home loss to the Oilers on Tuesday – a loss that coach Barry Trotz refused to pin on the hubbub surrounding Radulov’s return.

The Penguins, meanwhile, have a few players worth watching as well.

      Yes ! fun game a worthy opponent and Sabres lose tonight. I am ditching studyhall for this game- I love to see Fluery play- so he had a freak game last week he is still breathtaking Goalee- Sabres needn’t feel bad- I wrote they would win last game and didn’t they just? Magic in the air tonight- then Sabres can feel blessed they don’t live in the Pits. Nice to see Raduluv tonight he is one mig of a contender.

    Cant wait til Soupcan Sid n the gang put on another clinic tonight. Nashville could add Jesus to their line up and it won’t make a difference.

    Radulov who???

      C’mon Pens are my team and I’ve seen Radulov’s game. If a mig put on skates it would’ve been called RADULOV. Russia Federation wants him back for obvious gaming reasons. And I repeat: Pens are my team.
