Minnesota Wild @ Nashville Predators: Game Preview

The Wild take on the Predators tonight at 6pm

Christian Petersen

Time to shake off last night's loss with another Wild game tonight. Here is your quick rundown of what's up with tonight's game.


The Wild lineup stays the same, with the exception of Darcy Kuemper starting in goal instead of Niklas Backstom (which was the plan all along, it is NOT in response to Backstrom's game last night).

As far as Nashville goes, the lineup is somewhat up in the air. Late word from Russo is that the Preds will be starting Marek Mazenic in goal (Pekka Rinne has been out with injury for some time)

Last night-

Both teams played last night, and both teams lost. Nashville played Ottawa at home last night and lost in a shootout, while the Wild lost to Colorado in regulation


Minnesota is 24-18-5, and has won 4 out of their last 4 games. Nashville is 19-20-7, and has lost 5 of their last 6 games.

The Wild are looking to win their 3rd road game in row tonight.
