The Nashville Predators complete their three-game season series with the Anaheim Ducks tonight (at 7 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (43-14-9) have won a franchise-record nine in a row and can reach double digits by sweeping their series with the Ducks. Nashville held a full morning skate on Thursday with forward Kyle Turris and d-man Anthony Bitetto joining in on line rushes. Roman Josi (upper-body injury; day-to-day) and Kevin Fiala - who both participated in the morning skate - appear to be out tonight. 

Anaheim (34-21-12) has won three-straight games, including a 4-0 win over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday. The three wins in a row have vaulted the Ducks into second place in the Pacific Division. 

Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Thursday's morning skate:

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
