DETROIT (AP) -- Gabriel Bourque and Francis Bouillon scored in the second period and Pekka Rinne made 26 saves to help the Nashville Predators beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Friday night for coach Barry Trotz's 500th victory with the franchise.

Nashville moved a point ahead of Detroit with four games left in the regular season to be the fourth-seeded team with home-ice advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

The Red Wings were held scoreless on three power plays in the second period in part because Rinne made a sprawling glove save to prevent Henrik Zetterberg from scoring off a rebound.
