Predators' center Scott Nichol is scheduled to talk with NHL officials here this afternoon and could face a suspension for the double-minor, high-sticking penalty he picked up in Montreal on Saturday. Nichol was given the four-minute penalty late in the second period of the Predators? 5-4 shootout victory, after officials whistled him for what appeared to be a crosscheck to the chin of Montreal defenseman Patrice Brisebois. Nichol served a nine-game suspension last season, after punching Buffalo?s Jaroslav Spacek from behind.
