It only took seven seconds to send the Red Wings fans home with another notch in their record-breaking streak and Nashville into the weekend suffering a heart-breaking regulation loss.

Pavel Datsyuk is in a word: brilliant. He nets the game winner and assisted on the first goal of the game. The vision and skill Datsyuk possesses is as mind-boggling as his toe-drag and wrister.

Pekka Rinne and Joey McDonald stood tall and kept this game very close amidst point-blank scoring opportunities from both sides. McDonald especially made key saves on the PP and in the second period to keep the Red Wings tied with the Predators…until….

Special Teams:

Powerplay – 0 for 2, 0%
Penalty Kill – 1 for 1, 100%

Best Play of the Game: Tootoo fought hard to knock Kindl off the puck and feed a beauty to Spaling for the tying goal of the second period

Worst Play of the Game: In the first period, Datsyuk carries the puck in, dangles then falls. Weber non-chalantly skates over but Datsyuk has great vision to catch Bertuzzi trailing in and Bertuzzi catches a floundering Suter on a pass to Franzen for the games first goal.

My Three Stars:

#1: – Pavel Datsyuk – 1 goal, 1 assist, +2 on the night. Amazing player having a stellar night. Using all his skills, he showed why he is one of the elite forwards on both defense and offense.

#2: – Joey McDonald – Had it not been for an above-average couple of saves in the second period, the Red Wings might have gone down by a couple goals. McDonald stopped 20 of 21 shots and keeps the streak alive

#3: – Pekka Rinne – The Red Wings always put a ton of shots on goal and tonight was no exception. Rinne stopped 29 of 31 shots and kept the game close as always. Tough luck on the Datsyuk shot going in but that is why Pavel is your #1 star.
