It’s kind of funny that the Wings decided to go after David Legwand, Steve Sullivan, Kimmo Timonen, Scott Walker and Marek Zidlicky and ended up losing.
Maybe the Wings were so worried with running those key Predators, they couldn’t focus on the task at hand — beating Nashville goalie Tomas Vokoun.
Nashville held on to beat Detroit 3-1.
Nashville was fast, as always, but Vokoun is what kept them alive. The man was gigantic in the third. Detroit had some amazing chances and he refused to go down. He would not be beaten.
Detroit is a third period team and Vokoun made up for the 18 tired men in front of him.
Now he just has to do it three more times.
Detroit leads the series 2-1.
