Predators Face Elimination, Will Attempt to Force Game 7 for Second-Straight Year

The Predators face elimination as they take on the Stars in Game 6 in Dallas looking to force a Game 7 (tonight at 7:30 p.m. CT).

Nashville got forward Brian Boyle back in the lineup for Game 5, after he missed Games 2 through 4, but the Preds fell 5-3 to the Stars. Last postseason, the Predators lost Game 5 on home ice and were able to win in Winnipeg in Game 6 to force a winner-take-all Game 7. 

"It's hard to put the disappointment of [Game 5] behind you, but we need to find a way to do it," Preds defenseman Dan Hamhuis said. "We have to learn from it, and build a good mindset going into [tonight's] game. I think playoff experience certainly helps in order to do that."

The Preds held a full morning skate on Monday at American Airlines Center and were joined by Wayne Simmonds (lower-body). Below is a Predators projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Mikael Granlund - Kyle Turris - Rocco Grimaldi

Brian Boyle - Nick Bonino - Austin Watson

Calle Jarnkrok - Colton Sissons - Craig Smith

Defense

Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis

Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban

Dan Hamhuis - Dante Fabbro
