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:
Craig Smith - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Filip Forsberg - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
Colton Sissons - Nick Bonino - Austin Watson
Rocco Grimaldi - Kyle Turris - Calle Jarnkrok
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro
Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
