The Nashville Predators are facing the Philadelphia Flyers tonight, but they could have to so without captain Roman Josi and young winger Colton Simmons.
Both players were absent from yesterday's practice, due to apparent maintenance day, but now fans are starting to wonder if is not something more serious. The star defenseman and the young forward missed today's morning skate again, and coach Peter Laviolette informed the media that they are both game-time decisions for tonight.
The Preds are holding their home opener tonight in Nashville. Fans will be disappointed if Josi and Simmons are not in the lineup. Very little information has been given on the nature of injuries that could be bothering the players.
Simmons and Jose have taken part in two games already this season, but have yet to record a point.
