Pekka Rinne made 23 saves and the Nashville Predators got goals from Calle Jarnkrok, Frederick Gaudreau, Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 last night at Bridgestone Arena. Sidney Crosby scored the lone goal for the Penguins.

Game 4 Highlights

The Stanley Cup Final is now tied at two games apiece with the clubs getting two days off before Game 5 Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

All is quiet on the Florida Panthers front, so I thought I’d run an expansion draft-related poll today.

The vast majority of the mock drafts I’ve seen so far have the Cats using the 7-3-1 protection scheme, but a very in-depth one I read last night had them going 8-1 and protecting four defenseman, losing Reilly Smith to Vegas to ensure defensemen Alex Petrovic and Mark Pysyk remain in the fold.

So that leads us to this:

Poll

What protection scheme should the Panthers use in the expansion draft?
