The Nashville Predators will begin their longest remaining home stand of the season when they host the Calgary Flames (tonight at 7 p.m. CT). 

Ryan Ellis, who made an early exit from Nashville's win over the Blue Jackets on Sunday, participated in the team's full morning skate on Tuesday. Nashville (28-22-8) is set to play their first home game since Feb. 12 (a 5-3 win over Dallas), a contest which will start the first of four straight at Bridgestone Arena. 

Calgary (29-26-4) is two points back of the Preds in the standings and lost the clubs' first meeting on Jan. 19, and also dropped their most recent contest in overtime to the Vancouver Canucks. 

Cody McLeod (Injured Reserve; lower-body) and Miikka Salomaki (IR; lower-body) also took to the ice for Tuesday's morning skate. Below is the Preds projected lineup based on the session:

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
