The Predators will be without winger Viktor Arvidsson for their rematch with the St. Louis Blues tonight (at 7 p.m. CT).
Nashville (10-9-3) lost Arvidsson for the next 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury after he took two cross checks from Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, who was suspended four games for the incident. Therefore, both players will not skate in tonight's rematch from 48 hours prior - a 4-2 win by the Preds in St. Louis.
The Blues (14-5-5) still lead the Central Division despite their recent loss to the Preds and have won two out of their previous three games.
Nashville held a full morning skate on Monday at Bridgestone Arena and were joined by forward Daniel Carr, who was recalled from the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) earlier in the day. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok
Daniel Carr - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund
Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith
Austin Watson - Colton Sissons - Mathieu Olivier
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro
Dan Hamhuis - Matt Irwin
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
