|Alex Ovechkin has yet to score this preseason.|
For Washington, Tomas Vokoun is expected to make his second start of the preseason, the first being a 3-2 loss in Chicago to the Blackhawks. Alex Ovechkin, Marcus Johansson, and Chris Bourque are all unlikely to travel to Tennessee, but most of Washington's defense corps should make the journey. The exact lineup is not known at this time.
The Predators will likely play Vezina Trophy nominee Pekka Rinne in nets, the second time Washington has faced Rinne this preseason. Barry Trotz is also expected to roll out star defensemen Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. Top center Mike Fisher is out and will not play.
Puck drops 8:07-ish.
