The Nashville Predators will likely alter their top two lines for their game against the Tampa Bay Lightning (tonight at 7 p.m. CT). 

At Monday's practice, Nashville (12-10-4) put Kyle Turris on the second line, alongside Mikael Granlund and Calle Jarnkrok. Matt Duchene also moved to the first line. The Preds are 3-1-1 in their last five games, but most recently saw their point streak come to an end after a 3-0 shutout loss to the Florida Panthers on Saturday. 

The Lightning (12-9-3) have dropped three games in a row (0-2-1). Nashville topped Tampa Bay in the clubs' previous meeting this season, 3-2 in overtime on Oct. 26. 

The Preds held an optional morning skate on Tuesday at Bridgestone Arena. Below is a Predators projected lineup based on Monday's full practice:
