NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Detroit Red Wings have enough postseason experience to know any comeback starts with one win in a series where the first three games were decided by one goal.
The Red Wings are facing their earliest elimination from the playoffs since 2006. Edmonton sent Detroit home after six games; Nashville is trying to do it in five.
The Predators will look to advance when they host the Red Wings on Friday night. A loss could be Detroit captain Nicklas Lidstrom's final game should the defenseman decide to call it quits this summer.
Valtteri Filppula said Thursday the Red Wings have to think positively. Goalie Jimmy Howard says they all know their backs are to the wall and he doesn't think anyone is ready to go home yet.
