Projected Lineup: Jets vs. Predators

After Watson Suspension, Predators Recall Aberg, Saros for Tilt Versus Jets

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

Two of the top three teams in the Central Division do battle in Smashville as the Nashville Predators host the Winnipeg Jets tonight (at 7 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (11-6-2) has won six of seven games, including a 5-2 blasting of the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday. In the contest, forward Austin Watson was assessed a boarding major and later suspended for the next two games. As a result, the Predators recalled forward Pontus Aberg and goaltender Juuse Saros, while assigning netminder Anders Lindback to Milwaukee.

The Jets (12-4-3) sit second in the Central after a blazing start and have won four consecutive games. Tonight's contest marks the first of five meetings between the clubs during the 2017-18 regular season. 

Nashville held a full morning skate on Monday, below is a projected lineup based on the session:

by Press Release @PredsNHL / NashvillePredators.com

Nashville, Tenn. (November 20, 2017) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Monday that the club has recalled goaltender Juuse Saros from the American Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals and forward Pontus Aberg from his conditioning stint with the Admirals. Additionally, the club has assigned goaltender Anders Lindback to Milwaukee.

Saros appeared in two games for Milwaukee on Thursday and Saturday, stopping 45 of 52 shots as the Admirals fell to the Cleveland Monsters in both games. The Finnish goaltender has made four starts in goal for the Predators this season, going 1-3-0 with a .855 save percentage. Saros earned his first win of the season - a 4-3 overtime decision in Los Angeles - in his last start with the Preds on Nov. 4. He holds a career NHL record of 11-12-3 along with a 2.64 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

Greatest Moments

Laine views Selanne's 76-goal rookie record as unbreakable

Jets forward believes it will be hard for anyone to come close to mark, which is in running for Greatest NHL Moment

by Tim Campbell @TimNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer

WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine says he can't fathom how Teemu Selanne scored an NHL rookie-record 76 goals with the Jets in 1992-93.

"I think for sure that's going to be a record that no one will ever break," Laine said. "It's for sure. If you score 76 during the regular season, not even as a rookie, that would be huge. So 76 goals, that was just a lot of goals and a record nobody will ever break."

Bitetto, Penalty Kill Help Preds to Beat Avalanche

Nashville Wins Eighth Straight Over Colorado as Preds Score Five

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Five different Predators found the back of the net as Nashville defeated the Colorado Avalanche by a 5-2 final on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena. The result gives Nashville their eighth consecutive victory over the Avalanche and 11 wins on the season, six of them coming at home.

After a frustrating loss on Thursday to Minnesota, a bounce-back effort from the Preds was on display on Saturday, with the penalty kill playing a starring role and contributions coming in throughout the lineup.

"It was a good night," Predators defenseman Anthony Bitetto said. "We can't win games [taking too many penalties]. We're fortunate enough that Pekka Rinne played one heck of a game. I think it's a good win after coming off that loss in Minnesota."

Aho Playing With Newfound Confidence Heading Into 100th Game

20-year-old Finnish forward has two goals, five points in last two games

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

BUFFALO, N.Y. - In the underbelly of KeyBank Center, a lowered basketball hoop sat no more than two feet off the ground near where Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen were kicking around a soccer ball. So, they made a new game out of it - kick it into the hoop.

Easy enough for Aho, who is playing with a newfound swagger after scoring two goals in his last two games to hatch the goose egg that incubated in his goals column for the first 15 games of the season.

"You always get a boost for your confidence when you score your first one," Aho said. "I just try to play the same way."
