The Nashville Predators will make the second stop of their five-game road trip when they take on the Vancouver Canucks (tonight at 9 p.m. CT).
This evening, Nashville and Vancouver will meet for the second consecutive Tuesday night. The Preds won 2-1 in overtime when the clubs played at Bridgestone Arena on Jan. 10, the game that started their current three-game winning streak. Two points this evening at Rogers Arena would signify the Predators first four-game winning streak of the 2016-17 season.
Colin Wilson, Roman Josi (must miss at least the next two games) and P.K. Subban remain on Injured Reserve. Subban participated in Tuesday's morning skate (and was alongside Mattias Ekholm during Monday's practice). Wilson also took to the ice for the first time since suffering a lower-body injury.
The Predators assigned Kevin Fiala to Milwaukee (AHL) and placed Petter Granberg on Injured Reserve today. The club also claimed defenseman Brad Hunt on waivers from the Blues.
Below is a projected lineup based on Tuesday's morning skate:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Calle Jarnkrok - Mike Ribeiro - James Neal / Craig Smith
Colton Sissons - Mike Fisher - Austin Watson
Cody McLeod - Derek Grant - Harry Zolnierczyk
Matt Irwin - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Yannick Weber
Anthony Bitetto - Alexandre Carrier / Brad Hunt
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
