Preds Face Canucks Again as They Go for Season-High Four Wins in a Row

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: 

Forwards

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

Mattias Ekholm - Yannick Weber

Anthony Bitetto - Alexandre Carrier / Brad Hunt
