Gamethread: Wild at Predators (7:00 p.m.)

Just four games left.

We’re kind of sick of playing against the Nashville Predators and their stupid good defenseman named Roman Josi. The Minnesota Wild have gone 0-3-0 against them and have managed to score just two goals in each of those games, with the Predators scoring 17 total. It’s not been fun!

Maybe Nashville is just the perfect antidote for the way Minnesota is set up to play, but nevertheless, something has just always gone astray.

With a couple key absences, the lineup looks a little weird, but this is what head coach Dean Evason said it would be like.

Projected lineup:

Kirill Kaprizov—Ryan Hartman—Nick Bjugstad
Kevin Fiala—Frederick Gaudreau—Matt Boldy
Joseph Cramarossa—Joel Eriksson Ek—Connor Dewar
Brandon Duhaime—Tyson Jost—Nicolas Deslauriers

Jake Middleton—Jared Spurgeon
Jonas Brodin—Dmitry Kulikov
Jon Merrill—Alex Goligoski

Marc-Andre Fleury gets the start.
