The Nashville Predators will complete a two-game road trip with a daylight tilt against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden (at 11:30 a.m. CT). 

The Predators (4-2-1) have points in five-straight games and could see the return of defenseman Yannick Weber. Weber, who joined his teammates for practice on Friday, was activated from Injured Reserve. Center Nick Bonino, who made an early exit from a game in Chicago on Oct. 14, was added to IR on Friday. 

The Rangers (1-5-2) are headed in the opposite direction of Nashville, losing their fifth consecutive game on Thursday, a 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

With today's contest being a matinee matchup, the Predators did not hold a morning skate. Below is a projected lineup based on Friday's practice:

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Scott Hartnell - Calle Jarnkrok - Miikka Salomaki
