Thoughts after 2 periods Red Wings, Predators Game 4

-The Red Wings' wide edge in shots on goal is misleading. They are throwing a lot of soft shots on Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne. It's like picking apples for the guy. The shots aren't along the ice or with any sort of screen. They are easy saves for him.

- Nashville is clogging up every aspect of this game. Only a goal will loosen up the tightness of it for the Red Wings. Obviously, that's easier said than done.

- Realizing this might be the last home game of his career, I've made it a point to notice each of Nicklas Lidstrom's shifts tonight. With all due respect to Bobby Orr and others, I think Lidstrom is the greatest defenseman of all time.

- The Red Wings fourth line is not getting much ice time, but has actually been threatening when given the opportunity. Cory Emmerton is surprisingly effective.
