The Nashville Predators will be nursing some injuries when they face the Chicago Blackhawks in the Windy City for the final time during the regular season (tonight, 6 p.m. CT). 

James Neal joined P.K. Subban and Miikka Salomaki on Injured Reserve with an upper-body injury yesterday. Viktor Arvidsson missed Friday's game versus the Panthers and is considered day-to-day. Colin Wilson exited Friday's contest early in the second period and did not return. 

Following the move to put Neal on IR, forward Frederick Gaudreau was recalled from Milwaukee (AHL). 

The Predators held a full morning skate on Sunday at United Center, which included Arvidsson taking the ice. Below is a projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok

Austin Watson - Mike Fisher - Colton Sissons

Kevin Fiala - Mike Ribeiro - Craig Smith

Harry Zolnierczyk - Vladislav Kamenev - Frederick Gaudreau

Mattias Ekholm - Matt Irwin

Anthony Bitetto - Yannick Weber
