Projected Lineup: Blues vs. Predators

Pollock Printing Projected Lineup: Viktor Arvidsson to Miss 4-6 Weeks with Lower-Body Injury

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Director of Digital & Radio Content

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:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok

Daniel Carr - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund

Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith

Austin Watson - Colton Sissons - Mathieu Olivier

Defense

Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis

Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro

Dan Hamhuis - Matt Irwin

Goaltenders

Juuse Saros

Pekka Rinne

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