The Red Wings last night moved closer to clinching their 22nd straight playoff berth with a 5-to-2 win over the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena. The victory pushed Detroit into seventh place in the Western Conference with room for 8 teams to advance to the postseason and they need one more point to make sure they don’t hang up the skates after this weekend. The Red Wings have one more game, playing tomorrow night at Dallas, which was eliminated from playoff consideration with Detroit’s win over the Predators. The Red Wings have a one point lead over both Columbus and Minnesota. Last night, Pavel Datsyuk posted a goal and two assists for Detroit while Johan Franzen registered a goal and an assist and Jimmy Howard made 20 saves in the win.
