It's Hockey Fights Cancer Night and Ford Military Week in Smashville, as the Nashville Predators host the New Jersey Devils (at 7 p.m. CT).
The Preds (44-14-9) have won 10 in a row, including a 4-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday. Nashville Captain Roman Josi (upper-body injury; day-to-day) joined the team for their full morning skate, and appears set to return to the Preds lineup tonight. Winger Calle Jarnkrok was absent from the session.
New Jersey (34-26-8) has lost four of five and were shut out by the Preds in the teams' first meeting on Jan. 25.
Below is a projected lineup based on Nashville's morning skate:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Kevin Fiala - Kyle Turris - Craig Smith
Scott Hartnell - Nick Bonino - Ryan Hartman
Colton Sissons - Mike Fisher - Austin Watson
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban
Alexei Emelin - Yannick Weber
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
