Pavel Datsyuk, who had a goal and an assist for the Red Wings on Wednesday, has one score with five assists in three games versus Nashville this season.. Looking to avoid their first nine-game road slide since one of the same duration spanned the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons, the Predators have dropped 14 of 15 (1-10-4) away from home.. However, Nashville snapped a franchise-worst eight-game slide (0-7-1) with a 4-3 win over Calgary on Tuesday.. Austin Watson scored his first NHL goal in his sixth career game and Shea Weber added two assists for the Predators, who will miss the playoffs for the first time in four seasons.. “We won the game.. We haven’t won for a while, so we weren’t quite sure what to do,” Nashville coach Barry Trotz joked.. “The guys have been working hard and they are not getting rewarded.. (Tuesday night) it was good to get rewarded.” Filip Forsberg, the No.. 11 overall pick in the 2012 draft acquired from Washington in the trade for Martin Erat earlier this month, recorded his first NHL point with an assist Tuesday.. Weber scored the winner and added an assist in Nashville’s 4-3 overtime home win over Detroit on Feb. source:–detroit-red-wings
