Nashville Predators Alexander Radulov And Andrei Kostitsyn will return for Game 5 after missing the previous two games, according to ESPN.com.

"I talked to both of them this morning. We have communicated," Predators' coach Barry Trotz said, according to the report. "They are part of our family, and they want to be in a position to get on the ice and help. They are back in the right mindset and they can make a difference here." The players were suspended for Game 3, and remained benched for Game 4 because Trotz didn't want to mess with the successful lineup.
