At least in the shot column, the second period has been all Red Wings, as they’ve outshot the Predators 12-2 through 14 minutes, but the game remains scoreless.
The entire game has been played in extremely close quarters, but it’s only gotten tighter as the seconds tick away. The Red Wings are finding some decent opportunities, but nothing of the Grade A variety, and chances are weak opportunities aren’t going to beat Pekka Rinne.
Shea Weber had a great chance breaking in with about 7:15 left, but Kyle Quincey was able to knock away Nashville’s scariest scoring chance to this point.
Danny Cleary has really been buzzing for the Red Wings, as has the line of Drew Miller, Justin Abdelkader and Todd Bertuzzi.
And with about six minutes to play in the period, the Red Wings are headed to their first power play of the stanza.
