The Predators are seeking their fourth win of a five-game road trip during tonight's contest (at 7 p.m. CT) in Minnesota.
Nashville (22-17-7) is playing their third game in four nights after winning the first two in Calgary and Edmonton. Minnesota (30-10-5) skated on home ice yesterday against the Ducks, rallying for a 5-3 victory. The Preds and Wild will be meeting for the third time this season on Sunday, Minnesota won each of the first two matchups in Music City.
After P.K. Subban returned from injury on Friday night, the next question on the injury front appears to be if Colin Wilson (Injured Reserve; lower-body) can return to action soon. Wilson has been skating with the team and participated in Sunday's morning skate in St. Paul.
The Preds held a full morning skate on Sunday at Xcel Energy Center. Below is a projected lineup based on the session:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Austin Watson - Mike Fisher - Craig Smith
Calle Jarnkrok - Mike Ribeiro - James Neal
Cody McLeod - Derek Grant - Harry Zolnierczyk
Matt Irwin - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban
Anthony Bitetto - Yannick Weber
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
