Projected Lineup: Predators at Blues

Second Half of Monumental Weekend Arrives for Preds, Who Face Blues for First Time in 2017

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The second act of a monumental weekend set of games arrives for the Nashville Predators in the form of an afternoon tilt with the St. Louis Blues (today at 3 p.m. CT).

Nashville (40-27-11) won a matinee game at Bridgestone Arena against the Minnesota Wild, 3-0, on Saturday, and now will try to follow up that victory with one over St. Louis, which would vault them into third in the Central. The Preds have won three of four games against the Blues so far this season, but the teams have not met since Dec. 30 (a 4-0 Nashville win).

St. Louis (42-28-7) has points in eight consecutive games, falling in a shootout to the Colorado Avalanche in their most recent contest. 

The Preds did not hold a morning skate prior to this afternoon's contest and the below lineup is based on the one used yesterday. James Neal and Yannick Weber are both day-to-day with upper-body injuries.
