Location: Amalie Arena, Tampa, USA
Competition: Regular Season
The clocks sprang forward an hour on Sunday, and today in Tampa, the puck will drop a few hours earlier than normal for a weekday meeting between the Predators and Lightning. The divisional foes will finish their two-game set this afternoon with a special 3 p.m. CT start; Nashville will be looking for their first win of the season over the Bolts after dropping the first five meetings, including a 6-3 decision on Saturday night.
The Preds continue to deal with injuries, and for the third-straight game, Nashville dressed six rookies on Saturday. Defenseman Mark Borowiecki was the latest to exit the lineup – he’s now week-to-week with an upper-body injury – and defenseman Frederic Allard stepped in on Saturday to make his NHL debut.
Whether it’s a 15-year veteran or a rookie with one game of experience, the Predators will be looking for more from their personnel this afternoon as they challenge the defending champs once more.

“Every game is about winning, and we’re not satisfied with last night,” Preds Head Coach John Hynes said Sunday. “We expect our team to play competitively [no matter] who’s in the lineup or who’s not in the lineup. [We have to] be a competitive team and find ways to win games. When you’re winning games, you’re trying to find ways to get better, and when you’re not winning games, it’s no different. But the mentality and the process doesn’t change just because your lineup changes.”
Hynes also said Sunday goaltender Juuse Saros, who remains on Injured Reserve with an upper-body injury, has participated in two consecutive practices and could be ready to play “fairly soon” as Nashville’s eight-game road trip goes past the halfway point.
However, Hynes added Saros is the only injured Preds player who could be back within the next two games. In addition to Borowiecki, defensemen Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis and Luca Sbisa, as well as forwards Matt Duchene, Luke Kunin and Brad Richardson remain out with various injuries. Defenseman Dante Fabbro is likely to return this afternoon after serving a two-game suspension.
