Red Wings Lose Game 1 Against Predators

Detroit News

The Nashville Predators beat the Detroit Red Wings last night 3-2 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Wings may have also suffered another big loss as well. Forward Darren Helm left the game in the first period after being sliced in his forearm by a skate.

In the penalty filled game, possibly because league commissioner Gary Bettman was in attendance, the Wings saw weird hops and strange bounces to the puck turn into goals.

Gabriel Borque scored two of Nashville’s goals. Paul Gaustad scored the other. For the Wings, both goals were scored on power plays by Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holmstom. Zetterberg was also the victim of a vicious hit late in the game as the horn sounded by Nashville’s Shea Weber. Weber slammed Zetterberg’s head into the glass.

According to the Detroit News, Nashville and Detroit were two of the least penalized teams during the regular season. Last night, there were 14 power plays between the two.

Game 2 takes place Friday night.
