The Nashville Predators play their second of two games in the Sunshine State in Sunrise, Florida, versus the Florida Panthers (tonight at 6:30 p.m. CT).
A 6-1 win over Tampa Bay, featuring a hat trick from Colton Sissons, gave Nashville their fourth consecutive win on the road yesterday. The Preds will go for five in a row when they face the Panthers for the first of two times during the regular season and for the only time at BB&T Center.
Nashville's roster for tonight remains in a state of limbo due to an existing injury and a few other players that exited Thursday's contest. Viktor Arvidsson took a hit into the Tampa bench and later logged another shift prior to leaving before the conclusion of the second period. Mike Ribeiro also did not log a shift in the third. James Neal missed the game entirely and is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Update: The Predators recalled forward Vladislav Kamenev prior to this evening's contest. See more here.
