Howard, Red Wings down struggling Preds

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Jimmy Howard stopped all 22 shots he faced to lead the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-0 win over the Nashville Predators on Sunday.

Howard has posted three shutouts this season and has three shutouts all-time against Nashville.

Henrik Zetterberg, Johan Franzen and Justin Abdelkader all tallied for the Red Wings, who moved two points ahead of the Dallas Stars for the final spot in the upcoming Western Conference Playoffs.

Pekka Rinne stopped 29-of-31 shots but it wasn't enough for the Predators, losers in six straight games.
