First-Seeded Preds Choke Against Underdog Red Wings


Red Wings forward Drew Miller celebrates a go-ahead goal with his teammates in front of Preds goaltender Pekka Rinne.



They started off a the series with a bang, but after game one, the Nashville Predators had trouble holding off the Detroit Red Wings' offense. After a shutout to begin the series, the Preds defense fell apart. They were in it until the end, but in games 5 and 6, Jimmy Howard played outstanding for the Wings. It was a painful way to lose, with the Wings being division rivals. GM Deku Scrub has publicly stated that he is looking to improve the team's defense for next season. "Pekka is a fantastic goalie," he said. "...but he can't do it all himself. Our defenders didn't do a good job in that series."

Game 1: 5-0 Win
Game 2: 4-3 Loss
Game 3: 4-3 Loss

Game 4: 5-2 Win
Game 5: 4-2 Loss
Game 6: 2-0 Loss
