BLUES (14-5-5) at PREDATORS (10-9-3)
8 p.m. ET; ESPN+, FS-TN, FS-MW, NHL.TV
The Nashville Predators will be without forward Viktor Arvidsson when they host the St. Louis Blues at Bridgestone Arena on Monday.
Arvidsson is out 4-6 weeks because of a lower-body injury he sustained during a 4-2 win against the Blues on Saturday. St. Louis defenseman Robert Bortuzzo will begin serving a four-game suspension he received for cross-checking.
Daniel Carr, who was recalled from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League on Monday, skated with forwards Matt Duchene and Mikael Granlund during morning skate while Calle Jarnkrok replaced Arvidsson on Nashville's top line with Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg.
Nashville is 1-5-1 in its past seven games. St. Louis is 2-2-2 in its past six games.
Players to watch
Blues forward Ryan O'Reilly has one assist in his past six games.
Predators defenseman Roman Josi has nine points (two goals, seven assists) in his past nine games.
They said it
"That's the whole reason why I wanted to come and try out was to try and make the team and play some games and try and help them win. I'm waiting patiently (for visa issues to be solved), but I'm a fairly impatient person. It's not a whole lot of fun waiting, checking your email to see how things are going. I guess I'm at the mercy of everybody else right now." -- Blues forward Troy Brouwer on the anticipation of making his season debut
"I think so. It can even be better, I think. I think there are still some times where pucks can still find their way in. We've just got to keep working." -- Predators forward Matt Duchene on if the team had some puck luck against the Blues on Saturday
