A win tonight could put the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference's final playoff spot prior to Thanksgiving Day. 

Nashville (11-9-3) has won two games in a row, both against the St. Louis Blues, and now takes on the Vegas Golden Knights (11-11-4) for the second time this season. On Monday night, the Preds saw Daniel Carr return to the lineup and notch the game-winning goal in the fourth round of a shootout. Carr was on a 10-game point streak with the Milwaukee Admirals prior to his recall to the Predators. 

Vegas recalled goaltender Garret Sparks on an emergency basis on Tuesday; Marc-Andre Fleury is away from the team due to personal reasons. The Golden Knights have dropped their three previous games, including a 4-2 to loss in Dallas to the Stars on Monday.

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

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok

Daniel Carr - Matt Duchene - Mikael Granlund

Rocco Grimaldi - Nick Bonino - Craig Smith

Austin Watson - Colton Sissons - Mathieu Olivier

Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis

Dan Hamhuis - Yannick Weber
