It's been a rough week for Nashville's Swedish players, as we received word earlier today that Viktor Stalberg will miss 3-4 weeks with an injured shoulder, and Filip Forsberg is nursing a lower-body injury that has been termed "day to day".

We'll stay tuned for updates following tonight's game. The Predators play the New York Islanders in their pre-season finale on Friday.
