Trying to change things up amid a four-game losing streak, the Arizona Coyotes have made a lineup change for their tilt against the Nashville Predators.

Following being a healthy scratch against the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday, forward Liam O’Brien will play tonight in place of left wing Michael Carcone who is sitting out.

This year, O’Brien has 128 hits and leads the NHL in penalty minutes (116) but will hope to instill his grittiness back into the Coyotes’ group tonight. On the offensive side of the puck, O’Brien has tallied three goals and five assists.

In the middle of a cold streak in terms of offensive production, Carcone was scratched as a result.

Lately, Carcone scored just one goal in his past 14 games. The speedy Canadian totaled 15 goals, five assists and a plus/minus rating of zero so far this season.

The Coyotes will face the Predators in a Central Division rivalry game this evening at 6 p.m. MST.
