Scoring chances from Game Two between the Red Wings and Predators.
Winging It In Motown's season-long look at correcting the stats for context continues into the 2011-12 playoffs. Join us for an in-depth look at the Red Wings' game 2 matchup against the Nashville Predators on Friday
Last night's 3-2 loss was a frustrating one for Nashville Predators fans, but as the team heads up to Detroit for Game 3 on Sunday, they need to stick with the plan.
Just as in Game One, the team which generated more scoring chances came up the loser, we had double-digit penalties, and the Predators still can't seem to score on the power play.
Some of the most closely-watched figures on the ice tonight are going to be Brad Watson and Mike Leggo, the referees for Game 2 between the Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings.
The emotions of Preds fans went up and down like a roller coaster in moments this morning, as word came out that defenseman Hal Gill joined the team for the morning skate... but then left the rink moments later.
