The Nashville Predators begin their seventh set of 11 back-to-back games this season when they host the Ottawa Senators tonight (at 7 p.m.); Nashville will visit the Detroit Red Wings tomorrow. 

Nashville (34-14-9) has lost two-straight games in regulation for the first time since December. The Red Wings beat the Predators, 3-1, on Saturday evening at Bridgestone Arena. The Predators held a full morning skate on Monday and were joined by Mike Fisher, who continues to practice with the team as he prepares for his comeback to the NHL. 

The Senators (21-27-9) topped the Preds 4-3 in overtime on Feb. 8. Ottawa has won two in a row, including a 6-3 blasting of the New York Rangers on Saturday.

Below is Nashville's projected lineup based on Monday's morning skate:
