A final tune-up comes tonight (at 7 p.m. CT) for the Nashville Predators (2-2-1) as they host the Tampa Bay Lightning (2-4-0) in both teams' preseason finale.
Nashville fell to Tampa Bay, 3-1, at Amalie Arena on Friday, Sept. 22, while utilizing a less-experience lineup, but both clubs are expected to dress more star power tonight.
Ryan Johansen and Nick Bonino (lower-body injury) were on the ice during Saturday's morning skate, but did not participate in line rushes. Mattias Ekholm and Calle Jarnkrok were not present for the skate.
Below is Nashville's projected lineup based on the morning session:
Filip Forsberg - Vladislav Kamenev - Viktor Arvidsson
Scott Hartnell - Frederick Gaudreau - Kevin Fiala
Miikka Salomaki - Colton Sissons - Craig Smith
Pontus Aberg - Austin Watson - Cody McLeod
Anthony Bitetto - P.K. Subban
Roman Josi - Alexei Emelin
Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber
Samuel Girard - Nick Bonino
Note: The Predators have not announced a starting goaltender for tonight's game
