Game Thread: Nashville Predators vs. Tampa Bay Lightning 4/10/21

Go Preds.

The Nashville Predators face the defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning this evening. The Lightning are minus Steven Stamkos, while Ryan Ellis has been taken off of injured reserve and may be returning to bolster the Preds’ lineup tonight.

Earlier today, the Dallas Stars handily won their game, leaping forward in the playoff race; for the standings-watchers out there, a win tonight remains very important for the Preds’ playoff hopes.
