Projected Lineup: Predators at Flyers

Predators Complete Season Series with Flyers; Seeking First Road Win

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The Nashville Predators will go for a season sweep of the Philadelphia Flyers and at least a point in their fifth-straight game tonight (at 6 p.m. CT).

Nashville (3-2-1) pulled off a last-minute win on Oct. 10, topping Philadelphia (4-2-0), 6-5, with two goals in the final two minutes of regulation. The victory was the Predators' first of the season, a run which started their current four-game point streak. The Flyers have won their last two contests by a combined score of 13-3 (topping Washington 8-2 and Florida 5-1).

The Predators held an optional morning skate on Thursday. Nick Bonino (lower-body; day-to-day), Yannick Weber (Injured Reserve) and Roman Josi were absent from Wednesday's practice. 

Below is a projected lineup based on Wednesday's practice:

3 Things: Preds Gelling as Young Season Progresses

Pekka Rinne, Viktor Arvidsson and Defensive Pairings Highlight Nashville's Early Success

by Willy Daunic @WillyD1025 / Television Play-By-Play

After six games of this young season, the Predators are showing signs of gelling.

Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette preached throughout training camp that despite last year's experience gained from the memorable playoff run, every group is unique. Roles have to be defined. New stripes have to be earned.

To a person, the team was disappointed in their first outing in Boston. A 4-0 loss in Pittsburgh certainly wasn't the desired result in the second contest, but Laviolette saw signs of life. In each game since then, Laviolette has expressed in his postgame comments that the Predators have shown game-by-game improvement. Not coincidentally, the team is on a 3-0-1 stretch as they head out for the next short-term goal: road wins.

Here are a few nuggets contributing to the improvement...

Game Day: Preds vs. Flyers

Nashville Heads to Philadelphia in Search of Their First Road Win of the Season

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

The Predators are back out east and looking for two points in the City of Brotherly Love tonight when they face the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

It's already the second and final meeting of the season between the two foes - Nashville won a wildly entertaining home opener against Philadelphia on Oct. 10, a 6-5 victory that saw the Preds allow five straight goals after being up 3-0, only to come back to score twice in the final two minutes of regulation.

That game started Nashville's current streak which has seen them collect points in four straight outings (3-0-1 record). Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette, who took the Flyers to the 2010 Stanley Cup Final, believes his team continues to improve in each game, and his players are pointing to one reason why.

Josi Returns to Help Preds Top Avalanche

Viktor Arvidsson Stars in Nashville's Seventh Consecutive Win Over Colorado

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Four different Predators found the back of the net as Nashville defeated the Colorado Avalanche by a 4-1 final on Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena. The win gives the Preds points in four-straight games, plus, seven consecutive victories against the Avalanche.

Viktor Arvidsson, Roman Josi, Colton Sissons and Austin Watson all tallied on the evening for Nashville, with Josi, Sissons and Watson collecting their first goals of the season. Filip Forsberg collected two assists on the night, the second of which was his 200th career point in just his 270th NHL game.

After a bit of a sluggish first period, the Preds got going to the level they've become accustomed to lately, with three goals in the second stanza. Watson capped the contest off in the third for Nashville's third home victory in three tries this season.

Avalanche Notes

BARRIE COMES UP CLUTCH: Tyson Barrie's third-period tally against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday was the 15th game-winning goal of his career and his second of the 2017-18 campaign (Oct. 5 at NYR), which is tied for first among NHL defensemen this season. Barrie's 15 career game winners are also the most by a defenseman in franchise history.

HOME OPENERS: With Wednesday's victory over Boston, the Avalanche/Nordiques franchise improved to 26-8-4 all-time in home openers (.737). Colorado is 14-5-3 in home openers since moving to Denver in 1995, which includes a 12-4-2 mark at Pepsi Center.

FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING: Avalanche forward Alexander Kerfoot notched his first NHL goal in Wednesday's home opener against Boston. Defenseman Nikita Zadorov picked up his first tally in an Avalanche sweater with an empty-net marker in the third period against Anaheim on Friday.
