SBN Blog: On the Forecheck Last meeting: 3-1 Nashville win

8:00 p.m. ET

TV: FS-Detroit, FS-TN

Detroit comes off a hard fought come-from-behind 3-2 OT win over the Anaheim Ducks. They travel south to Nashville to take on Central Division foe Nashville for a high importance game. Detroit currently trails Nashville for 2nd in the division by 3 points so a win would bring them within one game of second place. But don't expect that win to come easy as the Predators are getting some quality production out of Pekka Rinne in net and guys like Jason Arnott, Martin Erat, Steve Sullivan and JP Dumont.

Nashville won its last contest against the Red Wings by a score of 3-1 and won its last two games with a 4-2 win over Vancouver and a 3-2 SO win over Columbus. Detroit will look for continued improvement from Todd Bertuzzi and maybe Ville Leino. Chris Osgood will look to get his first win after losing 5 straight starts.

Puck drops at 8:00 p.m. ET and as always, GO WINGS!
