Tune in at 12:00 PM ET as the Predators take on the Red Wings in Game Three of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series. Patrick Pellegrini will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Good Afternoon! Welcome to the blog for Game 3 where the Red Wings will host the Predators as each team looks to take a 2-1 lead in this series.
The starting goalies will remain the same. Rinne and Howard.
@Deck I went with Nashville to win the series.
Puck drop from Joe Louis is just moment away!
These playoff games never seem to start on time. Puck drop should be coming up any minute.
@Sec328 Thanks for the update. Last night was great! So intense and only game 2, I love it! Hoping to carries over onto today. Preds/Wings will get us started for the big PIT/PHI game!
@Sec328 Hilarious, I never noticed that, I was too busy icing my fingers after the endless action. Don't think I will ever forget that game.
The anthem has just finished up at Joe Louis arena in Detroit. Puck drop coming up!
Line up changes for the Predators. Tootoo and Ellis are in, while Halischuk and Hillen are out.
@Sec328 For the playoffs we get to see the anthem.
Rinne makes the first save of the day and holds on for the whistle.
Miller takes the puck hard to the net and crashes straight into Rinne on the play. Refs believe it to be a goaltender interference penalty which will send the Preds to the PP just 1 minute into the game.
Miller must be pretty understanding with the penalty call given they year his brother had this year in BUF.
