The Nashville Predators will complete their season series with the Coyotes when they host Arizona for the second time (tonight at 7 p.m. CT).

The biggest news recently for the Preds (31-19-4) was the return of Kyle Turris (Injured Reserve; lower-body injury) to practice. Turris spent time on the third line and on a power-play unit during Monday's full practice. Zac Rinaldo and Miikka Salomaki also remain on IR. 

Arizona (23-24-5) took part in a crazy game last night, giving up three goals in 71 seconds before scoring twice in 61. Ultimately, the Coyotes fell to the Stars, 5-4, in Dallas on a late goal. 

Nashville held an optional morning skate on Tuesday. Below is a Predators projected lineup based on Monday's practice:
