A run of eight of 10 games at home starts tonight, when the Nashville Predators host the New York Islanders (at 7 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (26-22-7) completed a four-game road trip through Canada on Monday with a 2-2-0 record, losing the last two stops in Edmonton and Vancouver. Nashville sits five points out of the final playoff spot with four games in hand. 

The Predators reassigned Yakov Trenin to the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) on Thursday morning. 

New York (33-16-6) sits third in the uber-competitive Metropolitan Division. They've won two games in a row. Back in December, the Islanders fell to the Predators, 8-3, at Nassau Coliseum. 

Nashville held an optional morning skate on Thursday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Wednesday's practice:

Mikael Granlund - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
