The success of the Predators' four-game road trip will be determined in the finale tonight in Vancouver (at 9 p.m. CT). 

The Predators (26-21-7) are 2-1-0 on their trip, after wins in Winnipeg and Calgary and a loss in Edmonton. The club will now face the Canucks, the Pacific Division leader, who are six points ahead of Nashville in the standings after playing two additional games. 

Nashville did not hold a morning skate on Monday, but practiced on Sunday. Calle Jarnkrok, who has missed the last five games due to illness, skated on the fourth line, while Austin Watson, who has recently been a healthy scratch, was also on the line. 

The Canucks (30-21-5) have lost four games in a row, including a 6-2 loss to the Flames on Saturday. Vancouver beat Nashville twice in November by 5-3 and 6-3 scores. 

Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Sunday's practice:
