Description: Nashville winger Alexander Radulov will miss Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals Wednesday against Phoenix for a violation of team rules.

Description: After playing in the KHL for four years, Alexander Radulov made his return to the NHL Thursday. He scored Nashville's only goal in a 5-1 loss to the Penguins.
Insight: Even though the Predators didn't win, it was still a memorable evening for Radulov. He looked sharp and remember he was a force in Nashville several years ago (58 points back in 2007-08). Right now, Radulov looks like a smart fantasy pickup.
