We’re a little more than 11 minutes into Tuesday’s Game 4 between Detroit and Nashville at Joe Louis Arena and it’s the Red Wings who have been in control of the action so far.
The Red Wings hold an 8-3 shot advantage, but two of those came for Nashville in a goal-mouth scramble that saw the puck almost get through Jimmy Howard.
Mike Fisher saved a goal, knocking Valtteri Filppula’s tip off the goal line behind Pekka Rinne, but on the play, Roman Josi was called for interference, sending Detroit to the power play. The Red Wings were not overly effective with the opportunity, as the Predators killed it off.
Nashville’s defense has been great to this point, keeping the Red Wings to the outside for the most part and blocking six shots.
The Red Wings will have to kill their first penalty now as Todd Bertuzzi is being called for elbowing, Detroit’s 20th penalty of the series. The elbowing part was a bit dubious, as it looked like he didn’t elbow him, but he probably could’ve been called for interference on the play.
That advantage was negated, though, as Alexander Radulov was called for tripping 41 seconds into the try.
