The Nashville Predators start the first of three games in a row versus the Central Division with a one-game trip to Minnesota (at 7 p.m. CT).

The Predators (10-5-2) bring a five-game winning streak with them into a contest against the Minnesota Wild (8-7-2), who along with goaltender Devan Dubnyk, have recorded three consecutive shutouts. Nashville most recently knocked off the Washington Capitals, 6-3, on Tuesday night, while the Wild blanked the Philadelphia Flyers for the second time in four days.

Prior to their morning skate, the Predators switched goaltenders by sending Juuse Saros to the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) and recalling Anders Lindback. Nashville held a full morning on Thursday at Xcel Engery Center. 

Below is a look at their projected lineup based on the session:
