The next chance to end their losing streak arrives tonight in Nashville as the Predators host the Vancouver Canucks (at 7 p.m. CT). 

Interestingly enough, neither team has won a game since the Canucks topped the Preds, 5-3, on Nov. 12. Overall, the Predators have lost five in a row, while the Canucks have dropped their last three, including two to the Dallas Stars. 

Nashville (9-8-3) held team meetings on Wednesday. The Canucks (10-8-4) are making their second stop in a six-game road trip that will last for the remainder of the month. 

The Preds held a full morning skate on Thursday. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson

Calle Jarnkrok - 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 - Steven Santini

Goaltenders

Pekka Rinne

Juuse Saros

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