PREDATORS (9-5-3) at CANUCKS (9-6-3)
10 p.m. ET; SNP, FS-TN, NHL.TV
The Vancouver Canucks will try to end a four-game winless streak when they host the Nashville Predators at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.
Jay Beagle will be a game-time decision for the Canucks, who are 0-3-1 in their past four games and 1-3-2 in their past six after going 8-1-1 in their previous 10 games.
The center, who is key to Vancouver's penalty kill, ranked 10th in the NHL (84.4 percent) missed practice with an undisclosed injury on Monday but skated Tuesday and was listed as questionable by coach Travis Green.
Goalie Thatcher Demko will start; he made 31 saves in his last start, a 4-1 loss at the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.
Goalie Pekka Rinne will go for his 350th NHL win for the Predators, who are 1-2-2 in their past five games following a four-game winning streak.
Players to watch
Predators defenseman Roman Josi has 11 points (three goals, eight assists) in his past 10 games and nine assists in his last nine games against Vancouver.
Canucks forward J.T. Miller has five points (two goals, three assists) in a five-game point streak and 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in his past 10 games.
They said it
"We know the type of team we can be. If we win tonight we're 2-1-1 on a long 10-day, four-game road trip, and that's successful. It's a game that is probably going to define our trip." -- Predators center Matt Duchene
"It's a matter of one going in off somebody's rear end or shin pad or something. I don't know if it's us getting more pucks and bodies to the net … maybe getting in the goalie's eyes more and creating havoc out front." -- Canucks center Bo Horvat on Vancouver's power play, which is 3-for-22 (13.6 percent) in the past six games
