Predators Vs. Red Wings, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 2: Detroit Takes Early 2-0 Lead

The Nashville Predators are hosting the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night in Tennessee. In the second game of their first-round best-of-seven series in the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, the Predators hold a 1-0 lead. After one period of play, the Red Wings lead 2-0.

The Red Wings skated with confidence and patience early on and opened up the scoring on just their second shot on goal. Ian White took a shot at 8:25, aided by a moving screen in front of the net. Nashville Pekka Rinne never saw the puck and it flew in for a 1-0 Detroit lead.

At 15:33, the Red Wings added a second goal off a turnover and breakaway, as Cory Emmerton beat two defenders and flipped one in, top-shelf, past the glove hand of Rinne.

It really was a tremendous goal in every aspect, and it gave the Red Wings an important cushion heading into the first intermission.
