NASHVILLE -- Shea Weber addressed the media in Nashville after missing Tuesday's game in Dallas with a lower-body injury, and hinted that he would be a game-time decision against the Predators.

"We'll see. We'll meet with the trainers and staff later, and see how it is," said Weber, who was met by both Montreal and Nashville media upon his return to Music City for just the second time since being traded to the Canadiens in June 2016.

Still, the All-Star defenseman will not push himself prematurely just to face his former team -- at least not more than usual.

"I tried to push yesterday [against the Stars]. Obviously right now is a crucial time for our team -- we're trying to get things back on track, so I want to be out there with the guys," stressed the 32-year-old. "I don't think the fact that it's here makes it any different than any other night. I definitely want to be back out there with the guys, helping anyway I can."

In 20 games this season, Weber has four goals and nine assists for 13 points. Prior to Tuesday, the Sicamous, B.C. native had only missed one game, on November 9 against Minnesota.

Tuesday's injury and the one from earlier in the month are unrelated, according to Weber.
