The road trip finale in Vancouver (at 9 p.m. CT tonight) has the opportunity to make or break the Predators four-game road trip. 

Nashville (9-5-3) is 1-1-1 on the trip so far, with a win in Detroit, regulation loss in Colorado and shootout loss in San Jose. The Preds had all 22 skaters present for their practice on Monday. Forward Mikael Granlund skated on the first line alongside Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen
