After eight days away, the Nashville Predators are back in action tonight when they'll host the Toronto Maple Leafs. 

Nashville (22-18-7) and Toronto have seen their season narratives share several similarities, with both clubs making coaching changes and both teams sitting just outside of the playoff picture, looking for a spark. The Preds practiced at Ford Ice Center Bellevue on Sunday and were joined by Colton Sissons (Injured Reserve), Yakov Trenin and Jarred Tinordi, who had been recalled from Milwaukee (AHL) earlier in the day. The trio did not skate in line rushes. 

The Maple Leafs (25-17-7) have lost five of six games and sit four points out of the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot. 

The Predators held a full morning skate on Monday at Bridgestone Arena. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Calle Jarnkrok - Ryan Johansen - Austin Watson

Filip Forsberg - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund

Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Viktor Arvidsson

Colin Blackwell - Kyle Turris - Craig Smith

Defense

Roman Josi - Yannick Weber

Mattias Ekholm - Dante Fabbro

Dan Hamhuis - Matt Irwin

Goaltenders

Pekka Rinne

Juuse Saros

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