The Predators and the Red Wings will complete their season series with games No. 7 and No. 8, tonight and Thursday.
Nashville (20-18-1) is 4-2-0 against Detroit this season. The Predators are also winners of nine of their last 11 games and are two games over .500 for the first time since they began the season 2-0-0 in mid-January. Forward Viktor Arvidsson is day-to-day with an upper-body injury after exiting Saturday's 3-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. He traveled with the team to Detroit. Prior to Saturday's contest, Nashville announced they'll be without defenseman Alexandre Carrier for 3-5 weeks due to a lower-body injury.
The Red Wings (13-22-5) won big in their most recent contest, a 5-1 triumph over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Morning Skate Update: Preds Head Coach John Hynes said Arvidsson is not available to play tonight in Detroit, but the winger is making "significant process" from his injury. He remains day-to-day.
Afternoon Update: The Preds have recalled forward Rem Pitlick from the taxi squad.
Nashville held a full morning skate at Little Caesars Arena on Tuesday; Arvidsson was not present. Below is a projected lineup based on the session:
Eeli Tolvanen - Ryan Johansen - Rem Pitlick
Calle Jarnkrok - Mikael Granlund - Luke Kunin
Rocco Grimaldi - Erik Haula - Nick Cousins
Yakov Trenin - Colton Sissons - Mathieu Olivier
Roman Josi - Dante Fabbro
