The Penguins take to the road for their annual trip to Nashville.

Expected Nashville lines

Calle Jarnkrok - Ryan Johansen - James Neal

Filip Forsberg - Mike Riberio - Craig Smith

Colin Wilson - Mike Fisher - Viktor Arvidsson

Cody Bass - Colton Sissons - Kevin Fiala

Roman Josi / PK Subban

Ryan Ellis / Mattias Ekholm

Matt Carle / Yannick Weber

--Their top 6 has been pretty flexible with a lot of movement around during the games but their bottom six has been more stable with the checking lines.

Nashville, a trendy preseason pick to go far this year, comes into tonight's game with just a 1-3-0 record. Not the best start, but the season is still very young. To make matters worse, they will be the tired team tonight, having lost 5-3 last night in Detroit.

The Penguins, of course, will not be feeling too sorry for them with all the injuries that Pittsburgh has already endured to their lineup. And as we saw just on Thursday with a tired, depleted-down-to-4-defensemen Pens team beating a much stronger team on paper in SJ, so anything can happen on a given night in the NHL.

On this given night, let's hope for a fun game between two of the more interesting teams in the league and hopefully, perhaps most importantly, no more injuries. Go Pens.
