Nashville Begins Back-to-Back on the Road with Conference Final Rematch

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The memory of Game 5 of the Western Conference Final comes quickly to mind as the Nashville Predators return to Anaheim for the first time since the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Tonight (at 9 p.m. CT), Nashville (5-5-2) faces Anaheim (6-5-1) at Honda Center in the first rematch since the Predators prevailed in six games this spring to advance to their first Stanley Cup Final. Both clubs have been hampered with injuries to key players in the early portions of this season; the Preds are expected to be without Nick Bonino (Injured Reserve) and Ryan Ellis. The Ducks should miss the services of forwards Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan Kesler and Patrick Eaves and defenseman Cam Fowler. 

Bonino joined the Predators during their morning skate on Friday; below is a projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Scott Hartnell - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Filip Forsberg - Colton Sissons - Craig Smith

Kevin Fiala - Calle Jarnkrok - Pontus Aberg

Cody McLeod - Frederick Gaudreau - Austin Watson

Defense

Roman Josi - Mattias Ekholm

Alexei Emelin - P.K. Subban

Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber

Goaltenders

Pekka Rinne

Juuse Saros

Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
