Nashville Predators

Howard makes 32 saves, Red Wings top Predators

Andreas Athanasiou and Dylan Larkin scored, and Nick Jensen had two assists for the Red Wings (22-28-7), who ended a three-game losing streak.

After Glendening redirected Jensen's initial shot, Athanasiou got the rebound and scored short side with a backhand off Rinne's left arm.

Larkin extended the lead to 2-0 at 7:13 of the second period on the power play, scoring off a cross-crease pass from Thomas Vanek.

Arvidsson scored 36 seconds later to cut it to 2-1 on a slap shot from the right face-off circle, and Subban tied it 2-2 at 17:32 on the power play.

We talked a lot about getting back to scoring dirty, and we felt like we weren't getting enough net presence like we had for a long stretch.

… Red Wings defenseman Trevor Daley had one shot in 19:26 of ice time in his return after missing 16 games because of a foot injury.
