Game 4 and act two in Dallas serves as a swing game between the Predators and Stars, with Nashville holding a 2-1 series lead (tonight at 7 p.m. CT).
A 40-save performance from Pekka Rinne helped the Preds steal Game 3 by a 3-2 final score. Mikael Granlund scored the game-winner for Nashville, who won their second straight in the series to rebound from a Game 1 loss. Game 3 marked Miikka Salomaki's first time in the Nashville lineup since Jan. 4, with Brian Boyle and Wayne Simmonds both out and week-to-week.
Nashville held a full morning skate on Wednesday at American Airlines Center. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Mikael Granlund - Kyle Turris - Craig Smith
Colton Sissons - Nick Bonino - Austin Watson
Rocco Grimaldi - Calle Jarnkrok - Miikka Salomaki
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban
