Predators vs Detroit, December 30th: Postgame reactions and tidbits…


Dec 30, 2013


Nashville knocked off Detroit 6-4 Monday night in front of a sold-out Bridgestone Arena, here are some of our observations…

Last month, Barry Trotz spoke out about Colin Wilson saying the he had to produce more for the Predators. Since being scratched on December 19th against Tampa Bay, Wilson has put up five points in his five games back, including two goals and an assist against the Wings.

Paul Gaustad had a better night in the faceoff circle for Nashville against the Red Wings. Gaustad finished 10 for 18 (56%) compared to his 4 for 11 (36%) on Saturday night.

Craig Smith is quietly on pace for a 51 point season, which would break his career-best of 36 points (14g, 22a) set during the 2011-2012 season. Smith is second in scoring for Nashville with 11 goals and 12 assists in his 37 games, notching seven points (5g, 2a) in his past six games.

“We just have to keep it going in the right direction. I thought we were doing some really positive things tonight,” said Smith. “We just have to keep it simple, keep it going in the right direction and keep pushing the puck.”

Another strong night for Nick Spaling. Scoring a goal in the second period, Spaling has two goals and an assist in his previous five games.

Mike Fisher has had a great couple of games for the Predators. Scoring two goals and an assist Saturday night against the Kings, he followed it up against the Red Wings with a goal, two assists, and a fight. His back-to-back three-point nights are the first of his career.

“I knew it was just a matter of time. I just had to keep putting it there and especially playing with the guys I’m playing with,” said Fisher. “They’re around the net making plays, you just have to keep doing that an we’ve been getting rewarded.”
