Red Wings visit Predators seeking fifth straight win

Detroit (35-11-7) at Nashville (25-25-3), 8:00 pm EST

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Marian Hossa and the Detroit

Red Wings have apparently righted the ship.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Red Wings will aim for their

fifth consecutive victory Monday, when they visit the Nashville

Predators in a rematch of last season's Western Conference

quarterfinals.

Detroit, which lost a season-high five straight games before its

current winning streak, is facing a team that is out for revenge

for the second straight game.

In their first visit to Mellon Arena since hoisting the Stanley

Cup there last June, the Red Wings cruised to a 3-0 victory over

the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pavel Datsyuk netted two goals and

former Penguin Ty Conklin made 25 saves to record his sixth

shutout of the season.

The Predators provided Detroit with its biggest obstacle before

the Finals, taking the Red Wings to six games in the opening

round.

Nashville had a four-game winning streak snapped with Sunday's

4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Captain Jason Arnott scored the lone goal for the Predators, who

had won five of their previous six contests.
