The Predators' five-game homestand wraps up tonight (at 7 p.m. CT), as Nashville hosts Edmonton. 

The Preds' (32-24-8) quest for a perfect homestand ended on Saturday in a controversial loss to the Avalanche. Nashville scored twice in the third period and had a goal disallowed for goaltender interference as they fell, 3-2. Still, the Preds are 3-1-0 through the first four acts of their homestand. 

On Monday, Preds Head Coach John Hynes said goaltender Pekka Rinne will start in net tonight and the rest of the team's lineup used on Saturday will remain the same.

The Oilers (34-23-8) sit second in the Pacific Division and have won the first two meetings this season with the Predators. Tonight's matchup is the third and final meeting of the season between the clubs. 

Nashville did not hold a morning skate on Monday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Sunday's practice and updates provided to the media today:
