Detroit experiences a mini odyssey on the road to New Jersey

by Arthur J. Regner @ArthurJRegner /

OTTAWA/JERSEY CITY -- When Mother Nature speaks, mankind listens.

Due to a nor'easter which produced a mixture of snow, freezing rain, ice and wind on the east coast, the Red Wings were forced to spend an extra night in Ottawa instead of immediately traveling to New Jersey after Thursday night's 2-1 loss to the Senators.

With Arvidsson Out 6-8 Weeks, Preds Prepared to Move Forward

Laviolette to Try Different Players on Top Line with Forsberg, Johansen

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The Predators will have to make their way without Viktor Arvidsson for the next six to eight weeks.

It was announced Wednesday the star winger will be out of the lineup, likely until the calendar flips to 2019, due to a broken thumb suffered last weekend in Dallas. It's a big blow for the Preds to lose Arvidsson who, along with Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen, helps to make up one of the more formidable trios in the NHL.

But just as the Predators have done before without top players available to them, they feel confident in the remaining members of the brigade to make up for the loss.

Projected Lineup: Predators at Coyotes

Austin Watson Set to Return to Predators Lineup Following 18-Game Suspension

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

One of the Nashville Predators' longest road trips of the season concludes in the desert with a game against the Arizona Coyotes.

The Preds (13-4-1) have dropped their last two, but are 2-1-1 so far on their five-game road trip. The injury bug has bitten Nashville hard recently with Viktor Arvidsson (broken thumb; out 6-8 weeks) on Injured Reserve, Calle Jarnkrok missing the previous three games and P.K. Subban exiting Tuesday's game early. Arizona (8-8-1) recently completed a four-game trip, going 1-2-1 with games against Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington and Detroit.

Update: Nashville will get Austin Watson back in the lineup tonight after serving a suspension for the first 18 games of the season. The Predators have placed Subban on IR and activated Hamhuis from IR. In addition, Jarnkrok will return to the lineup tonight in Arizona.

The Predators held a full morning skate on Thursday at Gila River Arena. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:

Nashville Concludes Five-Game Road Trip in Arizona

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators will conclude their five-game road trip tonight in the desert as they take on the Arizona Coyotes. It's the first of three meetings between the two clubs this season; Nashville will host Arizona twice as the schedule continues.

Nashville carried their perfect road record through the first two games of the current trip, but have now dropped two straight, including a 5-4 loss to San Jose on Tuesday, their first regulation road defeat of the season.

The Preds were without forward Calle Jarnkrok (lower-body) for the third consecutive game, and defenseman P.K. Subban left the game in the first period and did not return. Forward Viktor Arvidsson (upper-body) and defenseman Dan Hamhuis remain on Injured Reserve.

Forward Austin Watson has finished serving his 18-game suspension and has been reinstated to the team's active roster ahead of tonight's game.

Update: The Predators have placed Subban on Injured Reserve and activated Hamhuis from the IR. Arvidsson will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a broken thumb. In addition, Jarnkrok and Watson will return to the lineup tonight in Arizona.

Postgame Wrap-Up: Top Line Sparks Avs Past Bruins

Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen each scored in the comeback victory

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab /

In the Colorado Avalanche's matchup against the Boston Bruins, it was likely going to take more than each team's top line producing for either club to pick up the win. But it didn't hurt the Avs' cause that their top trio led the way in the comeback victory.

Colorado's No. 1 unit had three goals and six points in a 6-3 win versus Boston on Wednesday at Pepsi Center after Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen each scored in the contest. In 18 games this season, the threesome has now combined for 31 goals and 75 points--the most among any three teammates in the NHL.
