Predators Suspend Radulov, A. Kostitsyn For Game 3

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Nashville Predators announced Tuesday that forwards Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn have been suspended for Game 3 in the Western Conference Semifinals series against the Phoenix Coyotes.

The Predators said the pair violated team rules, but did not specify which rules the forwards broke.

"The Nashville Predators have a few simple rules centered around doing the right things," Poile said. "We have always operated with a team-first mentality and philosophy. Violating team rules is not fair to our team and their teammates."

Radulov was criticized for his performance in Sunday night's 5-3 loss at Phoenix, which dropped the Predators into an 0-2 deficit in this Western Conference semifinal. Radulov rejoined Nashville in March after spending the past four years in Russia. He has six points.

Game 3 will be at Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night.
