8 p.m. ET; FS-F, FS-TN, NHL.TV
Filip Forsberg could miss his second straight game when the Nashville Predators host the Florida Panthers at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.
Forsberg, who is day to day with a lower-body injury, did not participate in the morning skate. The Predators recalled forwards Yakov Trenin and Miikka Salomaki from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League on Saturday and reassigned forward Daniel Carr.
The Panthers will play the second game of a back-to-back set. They lost 5-4 in overtime to the Colorado Avalanche on Friday. Florida is 1-1-3 in its past five games.
Players to watch
Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau has eight points (three goals, five assists) in a six-game point streak.
Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis has six assists in a three-game point streak.
They said it
"We know we can score goals. We've got to keep the puck out of our net. We had a couple of goals again, open-side plays. We've got to be stingier in that area. Against a Nashville team, you've got to defend from start to finish. Loud building, fun building to play in, and we've got to play the right way." -- Florida coach Joel Quenneville after a 5-4 overtime loss to Colorado on Friday
"I think we gave up a lot of rush goals. Once we're in the [defensive] zone, the coverage is pretty good. There's not a lot of goals from that. Just rush defense and I guess just making sure you manage the puck and don't give them those chances to have those rushes, that's kind of been a problem for us." -- Nashville defenseman Roman Josi
