Act Two of the Predators and Stars home-and-home series arrives this afternoon (at 1 p.m. CT).
Both teams entered Thursday's game in Nashville on three-game losing streaks, and Nashville (33-26-8) emerged with their skid ended after a 2-0 victory over Dallas. Filip Forsberg and Matt Duchene collected power-play goals in the tilt.
The Predators were back at practice on Friday and appeared to maintain the same lineup they used on Thursday against the Stars.
Dallas (37-22-8) has lost four games in a row and sits third in the Central Division with 82 points. Another win for Nashville could put them into a tie for the first Wild Card in the Western Conference.
Nashville did not hold a morning skate on Saturday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Friday's practice:
Colton Sissons - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok
Filip Forsberg - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith
Yakov Trenin - Kyle Turris - Viktor Arvidsson
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro
Jarred Tinordi - Korbinian Holzer
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
