(DETROIT) – Roman Josi beat four Detroit defenders for a first-period goal, Ryan Johansen scored on a power play and the Nashville Predators topped the Red Wings 5-2 Tuesday night. The loss snapped Detroit’s season-high five-game winning streak and its five-game home winning streak. Josi took a feed from Dante Fabbro in the first as he sped into the Red Wings’ zone and skated 1 on 4 through the defense before beating Alex Nedeljkovic on the forehand. Nashville’s Nick Cousins, Eeli Tolvanen and Fabbro scored in the third period, and David Rittich stopped 14 shots. Detroit's Michael Rasmussen also had a third-period goal. Teammate Robby Fabbri scored in the second period with assists going to Pius Suter and Moritz Seider, who leads the Red Wings with 15 assists. Nedeljkovic finished with 28 saves.
