“Honkeytown has taken down Hockeytown,” was Dave Strader’s call as time expired in the Detroit – Nashville series. If you look at this series based on just this season, this wasn’t an upset. Nashville had more points than Detroit this season and came in as the higher seed. But if you look at this historically, this is as big an upset as you can imagine. Detroit is one of the original 6 franchises. The Predators franchise is barely a teenager.
Alexander Radulov put the Predators up in the first with his lone goal of the series.
David Legwand scored the game and series-winner early in the third period. The Predators advance to their second consecutive Western Conference semi-final. This guy was pretty excited about it. You might have missed him in the original picture of Legwand celebrating.
