Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Can't finish contest
Carrier (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Wild.
Carrier was hurt early in the first period, but he wasn't officially shut down for the game until the second intermission. If the 27-year-old defenseman misses time going forward, the Predators may return to a 12-forward, six-blueliner lineup, which could allow Liam Foudy to draw back in. The Predators have a back-to-back this weekend with a home game versus the Rangers on Saturday before a road game in Buffalo on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Juuse Saros: Set to face Wild
Saros is expected to start in Thursday's home game against Minnesota, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.
Saros has won his last four games while posting a 2.27 GAA and a .925 save percentage over that span. It's an encouraging rebound for Saros, who got off to a rough start this campaign and still has a shaky overall record of 8-9-0 with a 2.99 GAA and a .900 save percentage through 17 outings. The Wild rank 19th offensively this year with 2.95 goals per game, so this should be a relatively favorable matchup for Saros.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Juuse Saros: Wins fourth straight
Saros stopped 29 of 31 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Penguins.
Pittsburgh tied the game on a Bryan Rust marker late in the third period before Filip Forsberg would answer with a goal early in overtime, giving Saros his fourth consecutive victory. The 28-year-old netminder hasn't allowed more than three goals in a game during his current streak after dropping his previous five starts while posting an .859 save percentage. Saros is now 8-9-0 with a .900 save percentage and a 2.99 GAA on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Filip Forsberg: Goal, assist in win
Forsberg tallied a goal and an assist in a 3-2 overtime win vs. the Penguins on Tuesday.
Forsberg grabbed an assist on Michael McCarron's goal late in the first period before eventually scoring the game-winner in overtime, beating Tristan Jarry with a wrister just 14 seconds into the extra frame. The 29-year-old Forsberg is off to an excellent start this year, tallying 10 goals and 15 points in his last nine contests. Overall, he's up to 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) through 21 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Michael McCarron: Two goals in win
McCarron netted two goals in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Pittsburgh.
After scoring just one goal through his first 11 games this season, McCarron opened the scoring midway through the first period, deflecting a Tyson Barrie shot, before adding a second tally later in the frame. McCarron would also pick up three hits and a five-minute fighting major in the Nashville win. The 28-year-old forward now has five points (three goals, two assists) along with 20 hits on the campaign while skating on the fourth line.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Spencer Stastney: Sent down
Stastney was assigned to AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, according to Nick Kieser of Nashville Hockey Now.

Predators' Juuse Saros: First off Tuesday
Saros was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Nick Kieser of Nashville Hockey Now reports, indicating he will start Tuesday's home matchup versus Pittsburgh.
Saros has won his past three outings, stopping 81 of 88 shots. He has a 7-9-0 record this season with a 3.05 GAA and an .898 save percentage over 16 games played. Pittsburgh is tied for 16th in the league with 3.15 goals per contest this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Kiefer Sherwood: Slides helper in win
Sherwood posted an assist, four hits and two PIM in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Sherwood had a three-point game versus the Blues on Friday and followed it up by assisting on Roman Josi's second-period tally Sunday. The 28-year-old Sherwood saw just 10:27 of ice time Sunday, though he's been listed on the Predators' second line in recent games. He's at 10 points, 38 shots on net, 45 hits, 13 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 20 contests overall, by far the best scoring pace of his career.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Generates assist in win
McDonagh registered an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
McDonagh has four helpers over three games since he returned from a lower-body injury that cost him seven contests. The defenseman's best offensive days are behind him, but he can still chip in now and then. He's up to six helpers, 10 shots on net, 31 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 13 appearances, playing a defensive role in the Predators' top four.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Filip Forsberg: Helps out on power play
Forsberg produced a power-play assist and three hits in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Forsberg has earned seven points over his last five games, with all three of his assists in that span coming with the man advantage. The winger set up a Gustav Nyquist tally in this contest. Forsberg's fantasy stock was low after he missed two months to end last season, but he's rewarded confident fantasy managers with 11 goals, 14 helpers, nine power-play points, 83 shots on net, 31 hits and a plus-1 rating through 20 outings this season....

Predators' Yakov Trenin: Nets opening goal Sunday
Trenin scored a goal on two shots and added five hits in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Trenin took a pass from Roman Josi and powered through the defense to open the scoring at 19:40 of the first period. This was Trenin's fourth goal and fifth point over the last five games, an unusually strong run for the checking-line forward. Trenin has responded well to his Nov. 11 scratch against the Coyotes, as he hadn't recorded a point before that date. The 26-year-old has five points, 36 shots on net, 53 hits and a plus-7 rating through 19 outings overall.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Gustav Nyquist: Tallies on power play
Nyquist scored a power-play goal on four shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Nyquist's goal in the second period ended up being the game-winner. The winger is riding an eight-game point streak, though he's often been much more of a playmaker in that span with two goals and eight helpers during the streak. He's at three goals, 15 points (six on the power play), 43 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 20 contests overall. Nyquist's offense will likely drop slightly from his recent level, but his spot on the top line gives him a safe floor for fantasy managers in need of a scoring winger.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Roman Josi: Racks up three points in win
Josi scored a goal on four shots, added two assists, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Josi had been limited to one assist over his last four games. The defenseman was involved in all three of the Predators' goals, including scoring his fourth of the season early in the second period. He's up to 15 points, 75 shots on net, 34 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 20 contests. Josi has six power-play points and one shorthanded assist on the campaign as he continues to play big minutes.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Juuse Saros: Holds on for win
Saros gave up two goals on 34 shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Saros was solid over the first 50 minutes but gave up a pair of goals in a 42-second span in the middle of the third period. He was able to protect the one-goal lead to the end for his third straight win, with seven goals allowed on 89 shots in that span. Saros is up to 7-9-0 with a 3.05 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 16 starts this season, but it appears he's trending in the right direction. The Predators have a four-game week ahead, and it's likely Saros will start three of those contests, making him a strong option in weekly formats.... See More ... See Less

Schenn (lower body) will be an option to return to the lineup Sunday against Winnipeg, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports. According to the NHL's media site, he has been activated from injured reserve.
