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:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Vladislav Kamenev - Viktor Arvidsson

Scott Hartnell - Frederick Gaudreau - Kevin Fiala

Miikka Salomaki - Colton Sissons - Craig Smith

Pontus Aberg - Austin Watson - Cody McLeod

Defense

Anthony Bitetto - P.K. Subban

Roman Josi - Alexei Emelin

Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber

Samuel Girard - Nick Bonino

Goaltenders

Pekka Rinne

Juuse Saros

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