The Nashville Predators host the New York Rangers in a Hockey Fights Cancer matinee (at 1 p.m. CT).
The Preds (8-3-2) have points in six consecutive games but their last contest remains a sore spot - Nashville entered the third period up 4-1 but fell 6-5 in overtime to the Calgary Flames. Forward Filip Forsberg returned to the lineup in Thursday's contest against the Flames after missing six games with a lower-body injury. The Preds held a full practice on Friday but did not do line rushes.
New York (4-5-1) was victorious in their last contest, a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.
The Preds did not hold a morning skate on Saturday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Thursday's game:
Calle Jarnkrok - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Filip Forsberg - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith
Colton Sissons - Kyle Turris - Austin Watson
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro
Dan Hamhuis - Matt Irwin
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for today's game
