The Nashville Predators could see the debut of Brian Boyle, who was acquired from the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday, against the Dallas Stars tonight (at 7 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (32-19-4) won their last contest with a 5-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes. Nashville is 1-1-0 on their current three-game homestand, falling to the Stars on Saturday, 3-1, before hosting them again tonight to conclude the stay at Bridgestone Arena. 

Nashville General Manager David Poile traded for veteran forwards Boyle and Cody McLeod on Wednesday; both could suit up for the Predators tonight. Nick Bonino was absent from Thursday's morning skate. 

Dallas (28-21-4) has won five in a row, including Saturday's win over the Preds in Nashville.
