The Nashville Predators and Calgary Flames face off on Halloween in Smashville. 

Nashville (8-3-1) is on a four-game winning streak in which they've outscored opponents 16-3, including a shutout victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday. Center Matt Duchene returned to the Preds' lineup on Tuesday after missing a single game with a lower-body injury. The Preds lone injury question is currently Filip Forsberg and his lower-body ailment.

Calgary (6-6-2) has dropped their last two games, each by 2-1 scores.

The Predators held a full morning skate on Thursday and were joined by Forsberg. He also took line rushes. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:
