The final game is also the swing game for the Predators four-game road trip. 

Nashville (16-12-6) is in Boston tonight (at 6 p.m. CT), as the Preds look for seven of eight points to conclude their trip. The Preds opened the four-game set with two wins in New York and fell in overtime to the Ottawa Senators on Thursday. The club reassigned forward Yakov Trenin to Milwaukee on Friday. Seemingly, that's a good sign for the health of Mikael Granlund (lower-body injury; day-to-day) and Viktor Arvidsson (lower-body injury; Injured Reserve). Both players have resumed skating with the Preds. 

Boston (21-7-8) still sits atop the Atlantic Division, but has lost seven of their last eight games. 

Arvidsson and Granlund took line rushes during the Predators full morning skate on Saturday at TD Garden. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:
