The Nashville Predators host their third consecutive home game tonight as they continue their four-game homestand to open the season. 

The Preds (1-1-0) felt they deserved better in their first loss of the season on Saturday, a 5-3 defeat at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings. Nashville has remained healthy through the season's first two games. 

Tonight's visitors to Bridgestone Arena, the San Jose Sharks (0-3-0), are winless so far in the 2019-20 campaign, dropping two games to the Vegas Golden Knights before falling to the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday. 

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

Forwards

Craig Smith - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Filip Forsberg - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund

Colton Sissons - Nick Bonino - Austin Watson

Rocco Grimaldi - Kyle Turris - Calle Jarnkrok

Defense

Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis

Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro

Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber

Goaltenders
