Mike Ribeiro was scratched in Game 3 against San Jose as a coach's decision.
Coach Peter Laviolette said it was just "a lineup decision I made" and he wouldn't speak more about the matter. Ribeiro has one assist and a minus-3 rating in nine postseason matches. He has also won just 35 percent of his faceoffs. The Predators won Tuesday 4-1, so Ribeiro could be back in the press box for Game 4 on Thursday night. May 4 - 10:41 AM

Coach Peter Laviolette has made Mike Ribeiro a healthy scratch for Tuesday's Game 3 against San Jose.

Surprising turn of events, to say the least. Ribeiro has just one point and little else through the first nine games of the postseason, but the veteran ranked second on the team in assists (43) and fifth in points (50) during the regular season.

Mike Ribeiro is not on the ice for warm-ups for Tuesday's Game 3 against San Jose, indicating that he will not play.

Ribeiro has just one point and little else to his credit through the first nine games of the postseason, but that doesn't mean Nashville will be better off without their 50-point man.

The Nashville Predators haven't had a ton of success when facing elimination in Game 6.

The Preds have found themselves down 3-2 in a series on five different occasions and each time, they went on to lose Game 6. "If you’re down 3-2, everyone can do something better," said Mike Riberio. "Just stay focused, create more offense, but 5-on-5, be better defensively and wait for your chance and wait for special teams."

Mike Ribeiro has had a first round series to forget.

Not only has Ribeiro taking a few horrible penalties throughout the series, but his production has also been non-existent. The 36-year-old's assist in Game 5 was his first point of the 2016 postseason. He's also struggled in the face-off circle, winning only 29.7 percent of his draws. If the Predators hope to force a Game 7, they'll need Ribeiro to step up his play. Game 6 goes Monday night in Nashville.

Mike Ribeiro is just two games away from 1,000 in his NHL career.

He is projected to suit up in his 999th match on Thursday versus Philadelphia. "Yeah, I guess that's a lot of games," said the 36-year-old center. "I don't think — other than my parents, maybe a coach or two and maybe my agent — that there were very many people at all who thought I would play that many games." His production has dropped this year compared to 2014-15, but he still ranks third on the Predators with 30 points in 51 games.
