One more game awaits the Nashville Predators before Thanksgiving arrives. 

Tonight (at 7 p.m. CT), Nashville (12-6-2) hosts the Montreal Canadiens (8-12-2) as they conclude a three-game home stand, looking for their third win in a row.

The Predators will remain without Scott Hartnell (Injured Reserve), Yannick Weber (IR) and Austin Watson (suspension) for the contest. Watson will serve the second and final game of his suspension for boarding. The club recalled forward Frederick Gaudreau prior to Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets, but scratched him. 

The Habs lost last night in Dallas, 3-1, and have lost four in a row. Both defenseman Shea Weber and goaltender Carey Price are on the trip with the Canadiens, but either or both could miss tonight's contest with lower-body injuries. 

Nashville held a full morning skate on Wednesday, below is a projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Kevin Fiala - Kyle Turris - Craig Smith

Colton Sissons - Nick Bonino - Calle Jarnkrok

Pontus Aberg - Frederick Gaudreau - Miikka Salomaki

Defense

Roman Josi - Mattias Ekholm

Alexei Emelin - P.K. Subban

Anthony Bitetto - Matt Irwin

Goaltenders

Pekka Rinne

Juuse Saros

Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
