The Nashville Predators are back at Nassau Coliseum for the first time since 2015, as they'll wrap up a back-to-back set of games by facing the New York Islanders (tonight at 6 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (15-12-5) began their four-game road trip with a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers yesterday. Preds defenseman Mattias Ekholm returned to the lineup after missing Saturday's game with an illness and scored the game-winning goal. Mikael Granlund did not play on Monday with a lower-body injury. Viktor Arvidsson is on Injured Reserve but has resumed skating with the team. 

The Islanders (22-7-2) boast a 13-2-1 home record and have won three consecutive games, including a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday at Nassau.

The Predators did not hold a morning skate on Tuesday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Monday's game:
