The Nashville Predators play their first repeat opponent of the season, the Minnesota Wild, tonight. 

The Preds (5-3-1) snapped a two-game skid with an efficient 6-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night. Nashville currently has 12 healthy forwards on the roster, with Filip Forsberg still day-to-day with a lower-body injury. 

Minnesota (3-6-0) has won two games in a row, but lost starting goaltender Devan Dubnyk in their 3-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday. The Wild fell to the Predators, 5-2, on Opening Night at Bridgestone Arena on Oct. 3. 

The Predators held a full morning skate on Thursday at Bridgestone Arena. Forsberg was not present. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:

Calle Jarnkrok - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Mikael Granlund - Kyle Turris - Matt Duchene

Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith
