The Nashville Predators begin their longest road trip of the month - a four-game excursion - with a contest in Detroit (at 6:30 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (8-4-2) have dropped two games in a row, including a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon. Nashville was content with their game plan and effort, but were left wanting more execution in a contest that ended their six-game game point streak. 

The Red Wings (4-10-1) have lost two in a row by a combined score of 11-3, including a 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Florida Panthers this weekend. Detroit topped Nashville, 5-3, on Oct. 5. 

Nashville did not practice on Sunday before flying to the Motor City. The Preds held a full morning skate on Monday but did not do line rushes. Below is a projected lineup based on Saturday's game:

Calle Jarnkrok - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
