The NHL matchup between the Nashville Predators and the Colorado Avalanche takes place at the Bridgestone Arena (Nashville) on Thursday night. After a tense shootout victory over the Arizona Coyotes, the Nashville Predators traveled to Michigan to play the Detroit Red Wings before returning home on Friday. As these two old Central Division rivals played off, Ville Husso began in goal for the Red Wings, and Kevin Lankinen started for the Predators. Detroit started the period off well, keeping control of the offensive zone. However, as the period went on, the Predators staged a counterattack, exerting increased pressure deep in the Red Wings’ zone and seizing control of the final minutes. Jusso Parssinen continued to play well for the Predators, and Husso had to make a few heroic saves.
In the second period, Dylan Larkin grabbed the puck in the neutral zone, fooled goaltender Kari Lankinen into thinking he was going to pass, but instead scored skillfully for the Red Wings. Despite his best efforts, Mattias Ekholm was unable to prevent the shot. Moments after, Moritz Seider knocked down Filip Forsberg, and 20 seconds later, the Red Wings cleared the puck out of the goal area, giving the Predators 1:40 of five-on-three time. This gave them an opportunity to grab it back.
The Red Wings’ penalty kill, though, was more than capable of handling the situation, energizing the home fans and infuriating the Preds. It’s not ideal that Roman Josi received the majority of the Predators’ power play opportunities. Ryan McDonagh slipped into Lankinen’s legs while attempting to stop a shot, which caused him to have to make a few saves. Filip Hronek’s goal made it 2-0 for the Red Wings just a few short seconds later. The Predators appeared to be quite frustrated by this as the game slowed down in the second half of the quarter. Despite Olli Maatta’s interference with Cole Smith, the Predators’ power play failed once more.
