It's been confirmed that Reto Berra will be in Colorado's crease on Thursday against Vancouver.

The original plan was to have Semyon Varlamov start both games of the back-to-back situation, but he was pulled on Wednesday after surrendering three goals on seven shots. Berra stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced in relief, so he's being rewarded with the start.

We'll have that discussion tomorrow and we'll decide what game." He will dress as Cam Talbot's backup on Thursday night.

Mike Ribeiro is tied with Detroit's Tomas Tatar for first in the NHL in shot attempts at 5-on-5 among all forwards.

He has been on the ice for 1,252 even-strength shot attempts for the Predators and 955 against them for a plus-297 differential. Ribeiro has a simple explanation for that success. "The players that I've been playing with, elite players that like to shoot," he said. "I like to pass the puck. I tell those guys, 'Once I give it to you, you need to find a way to shoot it.' I used to tell (Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin), 'As soon as you cross the blue line, if I give you the puck, I want you to shoot the puck.' Same here (in Nashville)." Ribeiro has recorded 43 assists and 56 points in 74 games this campaign.
