:smallPHX: COYOTES (6-5-2) at :smallNSH: PREDATORS (6-3-4)

Season series: This is second of three meetings. The Coyotes earned a 4-0 win against the Predators on Jan. 28 at Jobing.com Arena.

Big story: It’s a matchup featuring goaltenders who have played huge roles for their respective clubs. Nashville’s Pekka Rinne is boasting a 1.75 goals-against average and .934 save percentage in 11 appearances, while Mike Smith has a 2.06 GAA over the past six games for the Coyotes.

Team scope:

:smallPHX: Coyotes: Phoenix has responded with back-to-back victories since suffering a 6-2 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks last Thursday. Captain Shane Doan had a big night Monday, when he scored a pair of goals – including the game-winner in overtime – to lift the Coyotes to a 3-2 win against the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center. The victory came just 48 hours after Smith outdueled Antti Niemi in a 1-0 shootout win at the San Jose Sharks.

Thursday’s match concludes the Coyotes’ three-game road trip.

“We were very fortunate to find a way to get the two points,” Doan said after Monday’s win.

:smallNSH: Predators: Nashville also blanked the Sharks this week. Rinne made 25 saves for his second shutout in three starts in a 1-0 overtime win at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday night. Colin Wilson scored the only goal of the game with 2:08 remaining in the extra session.

"I thought the third period we were the better team and I think that momentum kind of carried us to the overtime," Rinne said. "Obviously, it was great to see that (goal) go in."

Who’s hot: Since allowing four goals in that aforementioned loss to the Coyotes, Rinne is 5-1-0 with a 0.97 GAA.

Injury report: Phoenix is missing forward Matthew Lombardi (upper body) and defenseman David Schlemko (shoulder). … Nashville will be without forward Patric Hornqvist (knee). Defenseman Hal Gill (undisclosed) is day-to-day.

Steve Sullivan expects emotional Bridgestone return

It has been a long time since Steve Sullivan played a road game at Bridgestone Arena. To put it in some perspective, John Paul II was still the Pope. It was November 7, 2003 when Sullivan, then a member of the Chicago Blackhawks, squared off against the Nashville Predators. The Blackhawks won the game 2-1, with Sullivan posting one assist in 21:09 of ice time.

Later that season, he returned to Nashville after the Predators sent two second-round draft picks to Chicago in exchange for the speedy left winger.

During his time with the Predators, Sullivan played in 317 regular season games, scoring 100 goals and adding 163 assists. He missed nearly two years of action due to a back injury, but eventually returned to the lineup and was named the NHL’s Bill Masterton Trophy winner for perseverance and dedication to the sport of hockey in 2009.
