Acquired just before the trade deadline, Dwight King, Steve Ott, Brandon Davidson and Andreas Martinsen have all since arrived in Montreal, although only King will make his Habs debut against Nashville. During the morning skate, he was on a line alongside Torrey Mitchell and Michael McCarron.

Montreal is coming off a 1-0 overtime win against Columbus on Tuesday, and will be looking to extend its win-streak to four against Nashville. The last time the Habs and Preds met, on January 3 at Bridgestone Arena, Montreal took a 2-1 decision in OT.

Injured earlier in the season, P.K. Subban will face his former club for the first time on Thursday.

The Preds' offense, meanwhile, will be bolstered by Filip Forsberg, who scored 11 goals during the month of February, including 10 in his last five games.

Nashville is currently enjoying a 6-3-1 run since February 9, and is most recently coming off a 5-4 overtime win in Buffalo on Tuesday.
