Found April 06, 2013 on Fang Faction:
After missing the last game against the Blue Jackets due to illness, Victor Bartley will return to the lineup at maybe the best time possible; before a home and home with the Western Conference's best team in the league Chicago Blackhawks.  With Bartley returning, the Predators no longer need the services of defenseman Ryan Ellis and have reassigned him to Milwaukee. Puck drops in Bridgestone Arena at 2pm CT. Fans, remember to sing loudly to drown out the noisy and obnoxious Blackhawks fans.
