The Red Wings couldn't hold on against the Predators in the first game of their series on Wednesday, as they fell 3-2 in Nashville. Even worse, Darren Helm was knocked out with an injury, depleting a bit of the Wings' depth. Also, Shea Weber wasn't suspended for a fairly dirty hit on Henrik Zetterberg after the final horn had blown.
The Wings can put all that behind them and also take home-ice advantage away from the Preds if they can scratch out a victory on Friday at Bridgestone Arena.
