The finale of a four-game home stand pits the Nashville Predators against the Boston Bruins (tonight at 7 p.m. CT). 

The Predators (16-7-3) can claim six out of eight points from the four-game stretch at Bridgestone Arena with a win. Nashville beat Chicago to open the four-game period, then fell to the Vancouver Canucks and later topped the Anaheim Ducks in a shootout on Saturday.

The Bruins (12-8-4) bested the Preds on opening night on Oct. 5, 4-3, and have won two in a row, including a shutout win over the Flyers on Saturday.  

Nashville held a full morning skate on Monday. Ryan Johansen, who left in the second period of Saturday's game and did not return, was not present for the session. Scott Hartnell (Injured Reserve), Yannick Weber (IR) and Ryan Ellis (non-roster injury) again joined the Preds for the practice skate. 

Update: Johansen is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Below is a projected lineup based on the Preds morning skate:
