The Nashville Predators host the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night and Nashville could be getting a huge boost with the return of Ryan Ellis and Colton Sissons.

The Predators held an optional morning skate on Tuesday, but the two did take the ice according to Brooks Bratten.

Ellis and Sissons both participated in the Predators’ practice on Monday and are penciled in among Nashville’s projected lineup, per Thomas Willis:

Sissons skated on the fourth line during Monday's practice, while Ellis partnered with Roman Josi on the blue line.

Forward

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - James Neal

Kevin Fiala - Mike Ribeiro - Craig Smith

Defense
