SBN Blog: On the Forecheck Last meeting: 4-1 NSH win

8:00 PM ET


The Red Wings travel to Nashville to take on Pekka Rinne, Shea Weber and the Predators. The Predators are battling to get into the playoffs right now and a Detroit team with a 4-game win streak stands in their way. The Predators have won 3 of the first 4 games against the Red Wings this season, but tonight may be a different story...or we hope so at least.

Detroit will be without forwards Pavel Datsyuk and Jiri Hudler. Defenseman Brian Rafalski was banged up against the Blue Jackets, but is ready to go for tonight's game.

Puck drops at 8:00 PM ET and the game airs on FS-Detroit. Comment away below and LET'S GO RED WINGS!
