Pollock Printing Projected Lineup: Mikael Granlund Returns to Practice

Preds forward Mikael Granlund (lower-body injury; day-to-day) returned to practice on Monday, but it's unclear if he'll play against the Sharks. 

Nashville (13-10-5) will complete a three-game homestand when they host San Jose (15-15-2) on Tuesday evening. The teams have split two meetings to date and will see their season series winner crowned in this third and final meeting of the season. 

Granlund skated alongside Daniel Carr, Kyle Turris and Matt Duchene during Monday's practice at Bridgestone Arena. The rest of the forward lineup appeared to remain the same as the one used in Saturday's 6-4 win over the New Jersey Devils. 

The Sharks are one spot above the Preds in the standings and will conclude a four-game road trip on Tuesday. They've lost the first three stops of the trip and have dropped their last four overall. 

The Predators held an optional morning skate on Tuesday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok

Mikael Granlund / Daniel Carr - Kyle Turris - Matt Duchene
