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
Filip Forsberg - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith
Colton Sissons - Kyle Turris - Austin Watson
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro
Dan Hamhuis - Yannick Weber / Matt Irwin
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
