Mike Fisher and Ryan Hartman are expected to make their home debuts when the Nashville Predators host the Dallas Stars (at 7 p.m. CT).
The Predators (42-14-9) have tied a franchise record with eight consecutive wins, including going four-for-four on their recent road trip to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver and Colorado. Nashville has made several changes to their lineup recently, with Mike Fisher, Craig Smith and others sitting due to maintainence and Roman Josi out with an upper-body injury.
Dallas (37-23-6) lost both their starting goaltender, Ben Bishop, and the game last night, falling 3-2 in overtime to the Ottawa Senators. The Stars are 1-2-0 against the Preds so far this season and will conclude the four-game season set with Nashville this evening.
Below is a Predators projected lineup based on Tuesday's full morning skate:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Kevin Fiala - Mike Fisher - Craig Smith
Scott Hartnell - Nick Bonino - Calle Jarnkrok
Ryan Hartman - Colton Sissons - Austin Watson
Mattias Ekholm - Ryan Ellis
Alexei Emelin - P.K. Subban
Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
