The Predators can build on the momentum they started in Chicago, when they face the Jets in Winnipeg this afternoon (at 1 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (20-16-7) collected their first win under head coach John Hynes in a 5-2 victory over the Blackhawks on Thursday. The Preds built a 3-0 lead in the first period, and later saw goaltender Pekka Rinne ice the victory when he became the 12th goalie to score a goal in NHL history. The team got more good news on Saturday, when defenseman Dante Fabbro, who has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury, returned to practice. He skated alongside Mattias Ekholm during the session. 

The Jets (24-17-4) sit just above the Predators in the Western Conference standings. Winnipeg concluded a four-game road trip (2-1-1) with a 5-4 loss to the Boston Bruins. The Jets topped the Preds, 2-1, on Nov. 19. 

The Predators did not hold a morning skate on Sunday. Below is a projected lineup based on Saturday's practice:

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Calle Jarnkrok - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
