Red Wings Vs. Predators NHL Preview: Detroit Once Again On Winning Streak

For more on the Detroit Red Wings, go to Winging It In Motown.

The Detroit Red Wings are riding a winning streak of four games, and looking for their fifth on Saturday when they return to the Joe Louis Arena to host the Nashville Predators. It's been a whole season of streaks for Detroit, of both the winning and losing variety. They have not won just one game or lost just one game all season, beginning with a winning streak of five games, followed by a losing streak of six, a winning streak of four, a losing streak of two, and the present winning streak of four.

Their most recent outing, a 3-2 shootout win over the Boston Bruins, has to be more uplifting than the fact that they're on a streak. The Bruins had won their last ten straight games, and the Red Wings snapped it on NBC's Thanksgiving Showdown. Despite being out-shot and out-hit, Detroit rallied behind Jimmy Howard and pulled out the win, and are now looking to beat the Predators.

Nashville is looking to break a streak of their own, a three-game losing skid, coming after earning a point in 10 of 11 games from Oct. 27 to Nov. 19. The team had lost to the Edmonton Oilers 6-2, before taking on the Minnesota Wild and blowing a third period lead, to ultimately lose 3-2 to the division leaders.

This will be the first of six games between the Central Division rivals this season. The Predators took four of six games between the two last year. The game is set for 7:00 p.m. eastern on Saturday.
