Banged-up Predators host Coyotes

Injuries are a part of any season. They have hit the Nashville Predators at the midway point of 2017-18, potentially leaving them without their entire first line for Thursday night's visit from the Arizona Coyotes.

Fortunately for Nashville (26-11-6), it got plenty of practice at dealing with key injuries during last spring's run to the Stanley Cup Finals. So if it has to play Arizona without Filip Forsberg (upper-body), Viktor Arvidsson (lower-body) and Ryan Johansen (upper-body), it wouldn't be ideal by any means, but so be it.

"It's what you have to do. It's kind of what we talked about all last year during the playoffs," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "Whoever's playing, whoever gets the minutes, we're confident in everybody in this room and we're going to get the job done.
