Game 3 - 2nd Period

Sunday, 04.15.2012 / 1:01 PM
Both teams scored once in the second period and both teams had near-misses on power-play opportunites for what could have been a second goal in the period for each squad. At the end of the period, Nashville heads into the locker room with the same one-goal lead it held after the first period.

Nashville re-settled things when Datsyuk stole the puck off Josi’s stick behind the net and tucked the puck nearside late in the period to bring the momentum back in Detroit’s favor. The final TV timeout of the period – at 4:07 of the frame – settled the buzz in the building, but Detroit again surged when the Wings were able to draw four-on-four action late in the period.

Erat also assisted on Klein’s goal, moving the

No Goal -- The Preds escaped the end of the period when Detroit's power-play shot crossed the line after time expired in the second period.
