Wilson did not take part in Thursday's morning skate, the Tennessean reports.

Wilson, who has notched four goals in four playoff games to date, saw 27:50 worth of ice time in the Preds' triple-overtime loss to Chicago in Game 4 on Tuesday, so his absence from the team's pre-game skate in advance of Thursday's Game 5 could be maintenance-related.

Wilson netted his third goal of the playoffs in Friday's Game 2 win over Chicago.

Wilson is off to a red-hot start in the postseason and currently leads the league in goals. The 25-year-old, who found twine 20 times in the regular season, has fired a whopping 12 shots on goal in just two playoff games and has scored on the power play in back-to-back games. He's emerged as a key piece in Nashville and will continue to drive the offense on the second line with the talented James Neal.

Wilson potted two goals -- both in the first period -- in Wednesday's 4-3 Game 1 loss to Chicago.

Wilson started -- and capped off -- an explosive three-goal first period by the Predators, only to be erased by a three-goal second frame by the Hawks. Wilson ended up taking six shots on goal in the double-overtime affair, so look for him to tickle the twine a few more times this series as long as he's shooting regularly.

Wilson notched an assist during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Colorado, his first point in six games.

With 42 points in 75 games, it's been a career season for Wilson, but he's still a very streaky player who tends to disappear for long stretches at a time. Case in point - Wilson was on fire during December and January, racking up 23 points (11G, 12A) in 25 games. However, in the 29 games since then, he's managed just nine points (5G, 4A).

Wilson (lower body) participated in the Preds' morning skate and appears likely to play Tuesday against the Canadiens.

Wilson returned to practice Monday and looked to be a full participant in line rushes Tuesday, claiming a spot on the top trio next to Mike Ribeiro and Gabriel Bourque. The winger missed a game over the weekend against the Sabres due to the injury, but barring a setback in warmups, he should be on tap to play Tuesday.

Updating a previous report, Wilson (lower-body) did take part in Monday's practice, skating on a line with Mike Ribeiro and Gabriel Bourque, the Tennessean reports. "I'm feeling good," Wilson said afterwards. "It was just a minor thing I had to take care of and now I'm back at it."

Previously, Wilson's status for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens was somewhat in doubt, however now it looks like he may wind up playing. Either way, Wilson had just a single point in his last 13 games prior to the injury, so fantasy owners should feel no rush to get him back in their lineups.

Wilson (lower body) missed practice Monday and remains day-to-day.

Wilson suffered a lower-body injury in practice last Thursday, and hasn't returned to the ice since. He's still considered day-to-day, but will likely return to practice before rejoining the lineup.

Wilson (lower body) wasn't on the ice for the Preds' morning skate and appears to be out of the lineup Saturday against the Sabres.

Wilson has yet to take the ice since sustaining the injury during Thursday's practice. Coach Peter Laviolette relayed Friday that the Predators are listing Wilson as day-to-day, so there's a chance the winger could be available for Tuesday's match with the Canadiens.

Wilson (lower body) is being listed as day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game against the Sabres.

Wilson was absent from Friday's practice after injuring himself in Thursday's team session. The Predators have recalled Viktor Arvidsson from AHL Milwaukee under emergency conditions, so he could potentially enter the lineup Saturday if Wilson is unable to go. Expect a ruling on Wilson's status to come Saturday morning.
