NHL: Nashville Predators at Vegas Golden Knights Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden Knights look to snap a five-game losing streak as they take on the Nashville Predators tonight at T-Mobile Arena.

It has been a rough stretch for the Knights, who have gone 2-5-0 since returning from the bye week, including losing each of the last three games.

The Predators are 2-0-0 against Vegas so far this season; tonight is the conclusion of the season series between these Western Conference teams.

Nashville (34-21-5) trails Winnipeg by two points in the Central Division standings; Vegas (31-24-4) remains in third place in the Pacific but is losing ground on both Calgary and San Jose.

The Knights have put Brandon Pirri back on the second line with Paul Stastny and Alex Tuch for tonight’s matchup; Max Pacioretty will skate with Oscar Lindberg and Cody Eakin on the third line. Notably, Malcolm Subban will man the crease in tonight’s game.

Here are the projected lineups for both clubs:

Golden Knights

Marchessault — Karlsson — Smith
Pirri — Stastny — Tuch
Pacioretty — Eakin — Lindberg
Carrier — Bellemare — Reaves

Schmidt — Engelland
McNabb — Theodore
Merrill — Miller

Subban
Fleury

Predators

Forsberg (#9) — Johansen (#92) — Arvidsson (#33)
Fiala (#22) — Turris (#8) — Sissons (#10)
