The Predators conclude a three-game Central Division stretch as they welcome the Winnipeg Jets to Nashville this evening. It's the first meeting between the two foes this season; the Preds have won four of their last six outings against the Jets.
Forward Austin Watson, who received a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct on Saturday night, has been suspended for two games. As a result, Nashville will need to make a roster move today to fill out their lineup.
The Predators are trying to go 2-for-2 on their current home stand after defeating the Avalanche on Saturday night, scoring five or more goals for the fifth time this season, with each goal coming from a different skater.
"A lot of guys are chipping in," Preds defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. "Everyone wants to play. I think the competition is really good in here, and everyone is playing well, and that helps each other out. If you have a bad game, you know you have to be on your toes for the next one because guys are stepping up, guys are scoring, so everyone has to play on their top level every game and every night. That's just the name of our team right now."
