Kostitsyn working his way back into good graces

NASHVILLE It could not have been a fun couple of days to be Sergei Kostitsyn. Last Sunday in a 3-2 loss at Edmonton, the Nashville Predators forward had the bad judgment to give up on a play and go for a line change that turned into a 2-on-1 situation against his team and which resulted in the Oilers scoring a shorthanded goal.

Sergei Kostitsyn gives up on play, Oilers score

Nashville's Sergei Kostitsyn has some explaining to do. After failing to handle a pass, Kostitsyn abandoned the play, allowing Sam Gagner of the Edmonton Oilers to carry the puck in and dish it to Lennart Petrell who was able to tally a relatively easy shorthanded goal.  Chalk this up as one of the most baffling, lazy plays we've seen so far in 2013.  There are...
