After seventeen days and six games, the Red Wings will return home to face-off against the leagues top team, the Nashville Predators. Detroit is riding a two-game win streak after going 4-2 on their recent road trip. Nashville, on the other hand, hasn't lost a game in regulation in their past ten (8-0-2) and are currently riding a five-game win streak. Petr Mrazek has started the past four games (3-1-0) for Detroit, not allowing more than two goals in any of those games. The Red Wings have won four of their past five, and they have lost three times in regulation in their past 11 games (7-3-1). Detroit will get a bit of a break tonight, as Nashville will be without their top goaltender Pekka Rinne. The Red Wings have won 31 of 44 games all-time against Nashville at Joe Louis Arena.
