The first road trip of the season concludes tonight in Arizona for the Nashville Predators (at 9 p.m. CT).
The Preds (4-2-0) scored four consecutive goals on Tuesday night and came away with likely their most impressive win of the season, a 5-2 triumph over the Vegas Golden Knights. Unfortunately, Filip Forsberg exited the game in the third period, and Preds Head Coach Peter Laviolette has described him as a "game-time decision" for this evening's contest against the Coyotes. Forsberg did not participate in Thursday's full morning skate.
Arizona (2-2-1) topped the Winnipeg Jets, 4-2, in their last outing on Tuesday.
Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Thursday's full morning skate:
Calle Jarnkrok - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Daniel Carr - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
Colton Sissons - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith
Rocco Grimaldi - Kyle Turris - Austin Watson
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro
Dan Hamhuis - Yannick Weber
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
