The Predators lost to Detroit 4-1 in a game that was much closer than the score. The Preds out shot the Wings 32-22 and appeared competitive throughout the contest.

As is is often the case when Detroit hits the ice, the Wings take advantage of almost every miscue that the opponent makes and that was indeed the case on Monday night against the Predators. Jimmy Howard was outstanding and held the Preds scoreless until the game was all but over.

The Predators power play, which has been their bread and butter lately, sputtered, going 0-5 without captain Shea Weber.

The loss was somewhat overshadowed by the mysterious injury to Weber. Weber skated off the ice after a few minutes at the morning skate on Monday morning and then left the building before speaking to Coach Barry Trotz.

In the postgame presser, Trotz could not answer any questions about the injury as he simply did not have a report. More should be known later today after the team receives a report.

Here is the video of the Marc Fistric hit to Shea Weber at the end of Friday's game in Dallas that is speculated to have have sidelined Weber. With no factual information, everyone is left to let their imaginations run with the nature of the injury.
