The Nashville Predators return home following a 4-1-0 road trip to host the Buffalo Sabres (tonight at 7 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (23-17-7) faces Buffalo (19-18-9) for the first of two this season. The Preds have won three straight and will be trying for their first four-game winning streak of the season with a win over the Sabres, who have won two consecutive games in overtime (the most recent over the Canadiens).

On Tuesday morning, Roman Josi (Injured Reserve; upper-body), Miikka Salomaki (IR; lower-body), Colin Wilson (IR; lower-body) and Petter Granberg (IR; lower-body) joined the Predators for their morning skate. Josi skated with the team for the first time since leaving a Jan. 12 game versus the Bruins early. 

Below is a projected lineup for Nashville based on the session:
