Injury-riddled Predators look to keep winning vs. Devils

The old adage is that when a player is injured, opportunities for other players open up. Ryan Hartman has taken advantage of that situation for the banged-up Nashville Predators.

Hartman will try to help the Predators to their fifth straight home win when they face the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.

Nashville (21-10-1) remains one of the league's top teams in spite of a rash of injuries to key players. Viktor Arvidsson, who's scored 68 goals since the start of the 2016-17 season, has been on injured reserve since Nov. 11 with a broken thumb and Filip Forsberg (team-high 14 goals this season) was placed on IR on Dec. 1, reportedly with a hand injury.
