The Nashville Predators could have two lineup changes tonight when they host the Winnipeg Jets (at 7 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (9-7-3) has lost four consecutive games, including a 7-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks to open their current three-game homestand. The Predators recalled forward Mathieu Olivier and defenseman Steven Santini on Monday after reassigning winger Miikka Salomaki to the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) over the weekend. Both Olivier and Santini participated in practice on Monday. 

The Jets (12-8-1) swept their recent trip to Florida, winning 4-3 over both the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning.

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