Expect Ryan Ellis and Cody Franson to get more power play time while Shea Weber (leg) is out of the lineup.
Ellis already plays on Nashville's second power play unit, but he will likely see an increase in minutes because of Weber's injury. Franson, who was acquired from Toronto earlier this season, hasn't really panned out in Nashville but he should have more opportunities to produce from the backend now. The Preds will need all six of their defensemen to step up their game if they want to have a chance to win their series against Chicago. Apr 19 - 9:00 AM

Ryan Ellis scored his ninth goal of the year in a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Tuesday.

Ryan Ellis scored his second goal in as many games and now has 26 points in 56 games this season while registering a solid plus-8 rating. While injuries have played a role this season, he still hasn't quite broken out the way a lot thought he might in his second full season in the big leagues. He is still on the radar though for dynasty leagues at just 24 years of age. Calle Jarnkrok scored the other goal for the Preds in a losing cause.

The Nashville Predators have allowed the first goal in 11 consecutive contests.

Nashville eventually lost to Winnipeg by a score of 3-1 to extend their losing streak to six games.

"I thought we played a pretty good game like last (Thursday) and the bounces didn't come our way."

Ryan Ellis got back into the lineup Thursday after he was scratched for the previous three contests.

He didn't appear to be at full strength when he returned from a lower-body injury on Feb. 26, so he was held out of a few games. Ellis looked better in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Islanders. He skated with Mattias Ekholm and earned an assist in 12:28 of ice time.

He looked rusty in his return from a 21-game absence last Thursday against Minnesota and he hasn't played in the last two contests. "We're just making sure he's ready to go," coach Peter Laviolette said. The Nashville bench boss added that the team was being cautious with Ellis.

Ryan Ellis returned to action Thursday after missing 21 games with a lower-body injury.

He was limited to just 11:29 of ice time in Nashville's 4-2 loss to Minnesota. "I don't think it was my best game by far," Ellis said. "But you can't expect to get too much ice time (right away). It's a little bit of a feeling-out process." His return bumped Victor Bartley into the press box.
