Description: Predators winger Sergei Kostitsyn has been benched for Tuesday's game after his mental lapse Sunday caused Nashville to give up a shorthanded goal.
Insight: With the score tied 1-1 and Nashville on a power play midway through the third period Sunday, Kostitsyn decided to change on a two-on-two rush for the Oilers, setting up a two-on-one that the Oilers turned into the go-ahead score. His punishment will likely last one game.

Description: Predators wing Sergei Kostitsyn collected a goal and an assist Monday versus Colorado.
Insight: Kostitsyn hasn't been able to get much going this season with just six points in his first 16 games. He still has time to turn things around but we wouldn't consider him a fantasy threat just yet.

Insight: Kostitsyn now has 22 goals, which is both a career high and the leading total for the Predators this season. He is also the proud owner of a ten-game point streak, so he should be in fantasy lineups through the final week of the season.

Description: Sergei Kostitsyn scored two goals with a +2 in the Predators' 5-4 win over Anaheim on Thursday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Patric Hornqvist assisted on both of Kostitsyn's goals. Kostitsyn may be worth a look from the waiver wire, since he is currently on a five-game point streak. The Predators will need him to score a few more as they attempt to secure a playoff spot.

Description: Sergei Kostitsyn injured his foot during Saturday's practice.
Insight: After he took a shot to his foot, Kostitsyn didn't return to the ice. Nashville is hoping he can be a top-six forward this year, but doesn't really hold much fantasy value at this time. Look for him as a possible waiver wire pickup later in the year. (RapidDraft.com)
