Stop No. 3 in the Predators' three-game road trip takes place in Edmonton, when they face the Oilers (tonight at 8 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (21-16-7) has won the first two acts of their road trip, including a 1-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Juuse Saros made 28 saves for his first shutout of the season. Defenseman Dante Fabbro, who has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, has skated at the last two practices. He should be nearing a return. 

The Oilers (24-18-5) sit four points above the Predators in the standings and hold the Western Conference's final Wild Card spot. Edmonton has played three more games than Nashville. The Oilers have won three out of their last four games. 

The Preds did not hold a morning skate on Tuesday at Rogers Place. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Monday's practice:
