Game Two-- Red Wings - Predators April 13, 2012

A controversial final play, a suspension avoided and a debate underway, who knew that the Predators Red Wings game would be one of the most talked about ones of the early returns.  Nashville takes a 1-0 lead into game two, ready to revisit the game plan of Wednesday night that proved to be fairly successful for their goal of playoff advancement.

The Wings lost another man to injury on Wednesday, with Darren Helm out for the playoffs after suffering a cut tendon, Henrik Zetterberg, the victim of what can only be described as a mugging at the end of the game is scheduled to start, though one imagines he may be a little leery of Weber corners for the next little while.
