Projected Lineup: Predators at Stars

Predators, Stars Conclude Five-Game Season Series, Nashville Has Won Twice in Overtime

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The Predators and Stars conclude their regular-season series tonight (at 7:30 p.m. CT) in Dallas with their fifth meeting of the campaign. 

Nashville (34-22-5) has beaten Dallas twice in overtime this season, including a 3-2 win in OT on Feb. 7. The Preds dropped the first game of their current two-game road trip in Vegas, losing 5-1, on Saturday.

Dallas (29-24-5) has been shut out in their last two games, falling to the Tampa Bay Lightning and Carolina Hurricanes. 

Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Monday's practice:

Nashville Faces Dallas for Fifth and Final Meeting of Regular Season

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The final regular-season rendezvous between a pair of potential playoff opponents takes place tonight in Dallas as the Predators face the Stars. It's the fifth meeting of the 2018-19 campaign, with each team having won twice.

The Predators are looking to rebound from a 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Saturday night in Vegas as they close their two-game trip this evening at American Airlines Center. Nashville has dropped four of their last five outings, with one of their four wins in the month of February coming against the Stars.

The Preds allowed 50 shots on Saturday night in Vegas, and although the club had a solid showing in the game's first 20 minutes, it was the second stanza that put them well behind the Golden Knights. Understandably so, the Predators were frustrated with their efforts, and tonight presents an opportunity to collect two points before heading back to Nashville for the third and final, three-game homestand of the month.

The Kleinburg, Ontario, native also registered his first multi-point effort, as he added an assist in the third period on Matt Calvert's tally to secure Colorado's lead versus the defending Western Conference champions.
