(SportsNetwork.com) - The Nashville Predators have yet to lose consecutive games this season and they hope to keep that trend going by winning their final game before the All-Star break. The Montreal Canadiens, on the other hand, will try to deal Nashville its first losing streak of 2014-15 when they host the Preds in Tuesdays battle at the Bell Centre. The Predators, who own a four-point lead over Chicago atop the Central Division standings, have been one of the NHLs most surprising teams this season. Nashville has defied expectations by being the model of consistency under Peter Laviolette, who is in his first season as the teams head coach. Laviolette led Nashville to its fifth straight win, a 4-3 decision over former longtime Preds head coach Barry Trotz and his visiting Washington Capitals on Friday, before falling 5-2 the following night in Detroit. The setback against the Red Wings halted a 10-game point streak (8-0-2) and was Nashvilles first regulation defeat since Dec. 23 against Boston. Another loss tonight would give the Predators their first losing streak since an 0-3-0 slide from March 15-19 of last season. Nashville is playing without franchise goaltender Pekka Rinne, who has missed two games since suffering a lower-body injury last Tuesday against Vancouver. Rinne, who is a leading candidate for the Vezina Trophy, is expected to miss at least three weeks of action. Carter Hutton has started both games since Rinnes injury. He made 31 saves in Fridays win over the Capitals, but was pulled Saturday after yielding three goals on Detroits first four shots of the game. Marek Mazanec made 18 saves in relief of Hutton. The Red Wings beat Hutton for a goal just 57 seconds into the game when Gustav Nyquist finished off a 2-on-1. The lead would grow to 3-0 later in the first after Kyle Quincey and Tomas Tatar tallied 70 seconds apart. Tatars goal chased Hutton from the game with 7:28 left in the opening stanza. Mike Fisher and Mattias Ekholm each lit the lamp for Nashville. They got some breaks early, Fisher said. It was their night for sure. Its uncertain if Hutton or Mazanec will get the start tonight. Hutton has an overtime loss in his only career appearance against Montreal. Mazanec also has faced the Habs once, getting pulled from a start against the Canadiens on Dec. 21 of last season. He did not factor into the decision despite yielding three goals on just five shots in the 4-3 home loss. Nashville, which is 12-8-3 as the guest this season, will complete a brief two-game road trip tonight. The Preds will then emerge from the All-Star break with next Tuesdays home tilt against Colorado. The Canadiens also will play their final test for the break tonight. Montreal began a three-game homestand Saturday with a 6-4 win over the New York Islanders and the victory gave Montreal an 11-3-1 record over its last 15 contests. Tomas Plekanec scored twice and added two assists to lead the way in the win over the Isles. The victory halted a two-game home slide and pushed Montreals record as the host to 14-5-2. David Desharnais chipped in a goal and an assist for the Canadiens, while P.K. Subban, Dale Weise and Alex Galchenyuk also scored in the victory. Andrei Markov picked up three assists. Montreal again played without All-Star goaltender Carey Price, who is considered day-to-day with an upper body injury he sustained last Wednesday in a win against Columbus. Dustin Tokarski, starting his second straight game in place of Price, made 27 saves. That was one of the best teams in the league, but we had a good performance from all lines tonight, said Plekanec. Im happy that our line played very well tonight. Its (just) one of those nights when you get chances like I did. Price, who was selected to the upcoming All-Star Game, was back at practice on Monday and he could get the call for Montreal tonight. The Habs franchise goaltender is 23-10-2 with a 2.19 goals against average this season, but is just 1-3-0 with a 2.49 GAA in his career against Nashville. In other injury news for Montreal, forward P.A. Parenteau will miss a second straight game with concussion symptoms. Parenteau also missed three games earlier this month with a head injury before returning to the lineup Wednesday against Columbus. He has six goals and nine assists in 40 games this season. Montreal has won two of the last three overall meetings against the Predators, but Nashville has claimed the last two encounters in Quebec. Roy Halladay Jersey .com) - Colorado forward P.

The Yankees made the moves before Tuesdays game against Baltimore. Robertson was listed retroactive to Monday. Robertson posted two saves in three games as the replacement for retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before getting hurt. Jesse Barfield Jersey .J. -- Kyle Palmieri thrilled his personal rooting section with an overtime winner that sent the Anaheim Ducks to their seventh straight win. Kevin Pillar Jersey . The stress, the waiting, the whispers about whether he doped during his stellar cycling career, all of it ended when - after nearly two years - federal prosecutors closed an investigation of him last week without bringing any charges.TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger have the latest ahead of the NHL Draft on potential Jason Spezza trades, Dave Bolland heading to free agency, Joe Thornton and Ryan Kesler, and more. Thirteen years ago the Ottawa Senators drafted Jason Spezza. Now are they going to trade Spezza on Draft Day or perhaps even before? Bob McKenzie: They certainly hope so, and the talk has picked up the past 24-48 hours to the point now where there are four teams talking to the Senators about Spezza. Three of those teams are in the Western Conference and we know Anaheim and St. Louis are among that group. One mystery team in the Eastern Conference has entered the fray which makes things a little interesting. Keep in mind Spezza has a list of 10 teams that he cannot be traded to and there are four Eastern Conference teams that are on that list including Florida, Carolina, Columbus, and the New York Islanders. In a perfect world the Senators would like to have this done before or at the Draft; they would like to get a first-round pick in Fridays draft as part of the compensation for Spezza. David Bolland is set to become a free agent July 1 but Toronto has been looking at getting a deal done. Now they know exactly what he wants, is it too steep? Darren Dreger: He wants maximum value and as far as the Maple Leafs are concerned, yes its too steep. Its believed that hes asking for the maximum eight years to stay with the Leafs and at $4.9 million per year. Thats a tough hit. At 28-years-old, Bollands earned his right to unrestricted free agency. I believe the Leafs would be more comfortable in that 5-6 year range so its very likely Bolland is going to unrestricted free agency. Hes not healthy yet but hes well on his way and he hopes and believes hell be at 100% as early as training camp. Are the Edmonton Oilers in pursuit of a centre? Dreger: Yes, theyre looking for a centre and a defenceman and theyre very active. Theyre throwing out some considerable assets as well; we know that the Oilers third overall pick is very much in play. And Sam Gagners name seems to suurface annually at the draft, hes also trade bait for Edmonton.dddddddddddd And the Oilers are still in the game for the first overall pick with Florida. Will Joe Thornton go anywhere? McKenzie: Not right now. Its a dicey situation, I think in a perfect world the San Jose Sharks would like to try and trade Thornton and begin a rebuilding process using the return as a centerpiece for it. But as of right now, Thornton has no intention of waiving his no-move clause to go anywhere. Theres no list whatsoever, and if there was a list I suspect it would include teams the Sharks probably wouldnt want to trade him to like the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, or Chicago Blackhawks. In the meantime Thornton, as the captain of the team, is meeting with the core group of players and trying to pick up the pieces and carry on but well see what happens. So no list for Thornton but there definitely is a list for Ryan Kesler… McKenzie: There is a list of six teams for Kesler and the two teams that seem to be the most interested in him right now are the Blackhawks and Ducks; thats not news. Theres nothing imminent on the Kesler front because I get the sense that Anaheim and Chicago believe theyre the only two teams in the running, therefore the offers arent good enough for what Vancouver wants to do. Vancouver isnt going to do this deal if they dont get the right amount, or at least not at the draft. And the other thing for the Canucks, like a lot of teams, theyre trying to move up and get the first overall pick. Right now Panthers GM Dale Tallon has three legitimate offers, which is up from one. But dont confuse legitimate offers with a deal that he would absolutely make right now. Right now its more likely hell be using the first overall pick to make a selection than trading it. Is Dan Boyle about to get a lot of legitimate offers? Dreger: It was a brisk day in the Boyle camp, at least eight teams have made contact with Boyles representatives, and many of those teams will meet with his representatives on Thursday and that of course includes the Maple Leafs.
