Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson is out for Friday's Game 3 against the Carolina Hurricanes and is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, the team announced. 

Nick Cousins will draw into the lineup for the first time in the series, while Matt Duchene will start the game with Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg on the Preds' top line.

Arvidsson missed the final five games of the regular season with an undisclosed issue, and also missed a game in April with an upper-body injury.

Also for the Predators, Calle Jarnkrok (illness) is back in the lineup after a one-game absence, while defenseman Ben Harpur draws into the lineup for Erik Gudbranson.
