Predators Defeat Detroit Red Wings In Game Five

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn (AP).- The Nashville Predators defeated the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 in Game five of the NHL Western Conference.

David Legwand scored 13 seconds into the third period, and the Nashville Predators advanced to the Western Conference semifinals with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 5 on Friday night.

The fourth-seeded Predators capped a season in which they finished ahead of their Central Division rival for the first time by beating the Red Wings for the first time in their third playoff series. Nashville made it even sweeter by handing the Red Wings their earliest postseason departure since a six-game first-round loss to Edmonton in 2006.

Legwand added an assist, and Alexander Radulov also had a goal and assist for Nashville. The team that scored first won each game, and that was Nashville again.

Jiri Hudler scored for Detroit, which heads into the summer having lost three straight waiting to see if captain Nicklas Lidstrom has played his last game after 20 seasons.
