The third and final act between the Predators and Flames comes tonight in Calgary (at 9 p.m. CT).
Nashville (19-9-1) dropped the opening game of their two-game road trip, 5-3, to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday evening. Goaltender Pekka Rinne started the contest, but was replaced by Juuse Saros to start the third. The Preds are expected to be without their four players on Injured Reserve (Viktor Arvidsson, Filip Forsberg, Kyle Turris and P.K. Subban) again tonight.
