Nashville Predators fall to the Detroit Red Wings 3-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators can’t seem to find a way to win games lately, falling tonight to the visiting Detroit Red Wings, 3-2.  

This is the third consecutive loss for the home boys, and Detroit comes away with a sweep of the two game series.

It wasn’t from lack of effort, which coach Peter Laviolette is pleased with, they just can’t seem to catch a break or get the puck to bounce in their favor.

Nashville Predators fall to the Detroit Red Wings in OT 4-3

 

Nashville PredatorsDetroit, MI – The Nashville Predators lost the first game of a six game road trip tonight to the Detroit Red Wings, 4-3 in overtime.

Detroit played a very aggressive game tonight while the Predators put on a lazy performance, leaning on their All-Star goaltender Pekka Rinne for most of the night. 

The Red Wings dominated the first ten minutes of the game while Nashville had no shots on goal, but because of Rinne, they remained in the contest.  Oddly enough, it was Nashville that took the early lead in tonight’s contest.
