The Nashville Predators embark on a three-game road trip by visiting the Coyotes in Arizona (at 9 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (45-14-10) knocked off the Winnipeg Jets, 3-1, on Tuesday to reach the 100-point mark and collect at least a point their last 12 games (11-0-1). Nashville has split two games (1-0-1) with Arizona so far this season; tonight's contest marks the finale of the teams' three-game season set. 

In Tuesday's win, the Preds saw Calle Jarnkrok leave early with an injury and not return. Jarnkrok was also absent from Thursday's full morning skate at Gila River Arena, with Scott Hartnell filling in on the first line. Mike Fisher, Yannick Weber and Matt Irwin took part in the morning skate but not line rushes. 

Arizona (25-35-11) has played much better lately, winning two in a row and three of four. 

Below is the Predators' projected lineup based on Thursday's morning skate:

Scott Hartnell - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Kevin Fiala - Kyle Turris - Craig Smith
