A single-game road trip takes the Nashville Predators to the Big Apple for a matchup with the New York Rangers (tonight at 6 p.m. CT).

The Preds (26-19-8) are finally nearing full health following the return of Roman Josi and now list only two players on Injured Reserve (Harry Zolnierczyk and Miikka Salomaki). Following a 4-2 win over the Canucks on home ice on Tuesday, Nashville will try for a split of their season series with New York, after the Rangers (34-18-1) won 2-1 in a shootout in Music City on Dec. 17. New York has won three straight, including a 4-1 triumph over Anaheim two days ago.

Nashville held a full morning skate at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. A look at their projected lineup based on Thursday's session is below:
