Projected lineups for Predators, Blackhawks

by Brian Hedger / NHL.com
Here's how the lineups could look tonight when the Chicago Blackhawks host the Nashville Predators at United Center in a battle of Central Division rivals:

PREDATORS

Niclas Bergfors - Craig Smith - Martin Erat
Colin Wilson - David Legwand - Patric Hornqvist
Ryan Thang - Jerred Smithson - Jordin Tootoo
Matt Halischuk - Blake Geoffrion - Brian McGrattan

Ryan Suter - Shea Weber
Francis Bouillon - Kevin Klein
Jack Hillen - Jonathon Blum

Pekka Rinne
Anders Lindback

Top-line left wing Sergei Kostitsyn appears to be a no-go, which has thrown Nashville's lines into a state of flux. The Predators called up Thang from their AHL affiliate in Milwaukee.

BLACKHAWKS

Andrew Brunette - Jonathan Toews - Viktor Stalberg
Patrick Sharp - Patrick Kane - Marian Hossa
Bryan Bickell - Dave Bolland - Michael Frolik
Rostislav Olesz / John Scott - Marcus Kruger - Jamal Mayers

Duncan Keith - Nick Leddy
Niklas Hjalmarsson - Brent Seabrook
Steve Montador - Sami Lepisto

Corey Crawford
Ray Emery
