The series shifts to Nashville and the Predators are still likely to be without David Legwand, who did not take part in the morning skate today. Nashville coach Barry Trotz says Legwand will take the pre-game skate and decide from there.

No lineup changes for the Red Wings. Datsyuk and Zetterberg will start together but may not stay that way.

The last time the Wings took a 3-0 lead in a series was the opening round of the 2000 playoffs, en route to a sweep of the Los Angeles Kings.

I did not have a dream about hockey last night, first time this series.

Well I did. I dreamt that I missed the whole series for some reason, and the Wings got swept somehow. At least it was better than the dream about getting attacked by zombies I had the other night.

Anyway, I'd be happy with one win out of two from the two road games. Two out of two is just too much to expect.

While I'd love the sweep, coming back home for Game Five with the chance to win the series is also very nice. That's looking pretty far ahead, though, lots can happen between now and then.

I'm oddly calm about tonight's game.

Great Britain (0 NHL players) lost to Austria (containing Thomas Vanek, who scored a hat-trick) 10-5 today. I want cheering up. Hopefully the Wings can do that!

Let's see what the Powerplay can do.

Radulov went close there, but Hasek was having none of it.

Twenty minutes down and I think you've gotta be happy with that. Nashville expected to get some motivation from their home crowd and the Wings came out with the lead anyway. Far from decided but a good start.

Pretty decent start. Hasek's playing well....again, and that's given the wings a good platform to work from.

Hudler with the presence of mind to get control and jam it in. Huge goal.

And another Powerplay. Arnott's been poor, all series, and carries it on by giving away the penalty.
Can the wings capitalise?

Nooooo! That's livened the crowd up, which the Wings really don't want.

Well at least they didn't let in another one straight away. It could have been deja vu all over again.
