The Predators essentially elected to keep their same roster as the Trade Deadline passed on Monday. Tonight, they'll host the Senators as the unofficial stretch run begins. 

On Monday, Nashville (30-23-8) acquired defenseman Korbinian Holzer from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for blueliner Matt Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round pick. Holzer will not play tonight. At practice that same day, Pekka Rinne did not skate due to illness and Mikael Granlund received a maintenance day. Nick Bonino, who has missed two games due to illness, returned to practice. Preds Head Coach John Hynes says he expects all three players to be available for tonight's matchup. 

The Senators (21-30-12) participated in the only game on the NHL schedule yesterday, falling in overtime in Columbus to the Blue Jackets. Ottawa also made moves on deadline day, most notably trading forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau to the New York Islanders.

Neither team held a morning skate on Tuesday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on Saturday's game and updates provided to the media today:
