Pre Game: Isles @ Predators

Tonight, the Islanders pay a visit to Nashville to take on Shea Weber and the Predators.

The goalie matchup tonight features Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders and likely Pekka Rinne for the Predators.

The Predators will be missing some key pieces tonight as both defenseman Roman Josi and forward Victor Stalberg will not dress for Nashville tonight.

Meanwhile, for the Islanders I suspect the lineup to look pretty similar to the one from last nights game in Chicago.  The only change I could possibly see is Brock Nelson coming back to the lineup.  We may see a change on defense to after the struggles they experienced last night but I think that is less likely.

The Predators have really struggled to score this year, so if the Islanders are able to hold their own defensively they should be in good shape tonight.
