The Predators take on the Blackhawks tonight in Chicago and with injuries piling up for Nashville, it looks like there will be some major changes among the forward lines.
Here is what the lines looked like at the morning skate, via Adam Vingan of The Tennesseean:
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok
Austin Watson - Mike Fisher - Colton Sissons
Kevin Fiala - Mike Ribeiro - Craig Smith
Harry Zolnierczyk - Vladislav Kamenev - Frederick Gaudreau
And the defense, via the Predators:
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - Matt Irwin
Anthony Bitetto - Yannick Weber
Pekka Rinne is expected to stop the pucks.
That is quite the shakeup in the forward lines. The fourth-line could be fun to watch tonight (or a disaster) as Zolnierczyk, Kamenev and Gaudreau have a combined 72 NHL games under their belts. Zolnierczyk is responsible for 63 of those games played.
The puck will drop at 6:00 p.m. CST from United Center. Head over here to check out our preview.
