Wild visit the Music City tonight for their first meeting with Nashville this season. 

 

Same lines, defensive pairings for the visitors (Wild) tonight.

 

Projected Nashville lineup, via their website:

 

Forwards

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - James Neal

Kevin Fiala - Mike Ribeiro - Craig Smith

Colin Wilson - Mike Fisher - Viktor Arvidsson

Colton Sissons - Calle Jarnkrok - Austin Watson

 

Defense

Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis

Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban

Matt Irwin - Yannick Weber

 

Goaltenders

Pekka Rinne

Juuse Saros

 

If Rinne is indeed the starter for Nashville tonight, he has been not good in December (2-2-1, 4.22 GAA, .852 SV% in five starts).

Extra pair of shinnies tonight to account for Neal?

Just looking at their lines, I don't understand how Nashville isn't doing a lot better than they are.

I find James Neal to be on the short-list of my most-disliked players in the NHL.  

 

Then again, I find PK Subban to be one of my favorites.

Nino is playing the best hockey on the team for forwards, and he is on the third line.

 

Parise is not playing well, and he gets the first line. Let's hope he does better.

 

Granlund gets more minutes than he has earned.
