Nillson will start Thursday in Nashville.
Nilsson surrendered three goals on 28 shots in the Canucks loss to the Wild on December 4th. Nilsson started the season 3-0-0 but has lost six in a row with a 3.36 GAA and .884 SV% since then. Nilsson is very difficult to trust regardless of matchup but he should absolutely stay on the bench against a Predators team that is 12-5-0 in Nashville.
