NHL: Predators rally past Red Wings

Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. ó Jason Arnott scored with 3:58 left in the final period, the second Nashville goal in nine seconds, and the Predators rallied to beat the Detroit Red Wings
5-3 Monday night to get back into the first-round series.
Ryan Suter tied the game just nine seconds earlier, putting a slap shot from the left side past Dominik Hasek, who had dominated the Predators for most of the game and the series. Martin Erat scored an empty-netter with 41 seconds left to seal the come-from-behind win.
Nashville, which trails 2-1, will look to tie the series in Game 4 on Wednesday night, and the series will then shift back to Detroit on Friday.
Detroit had outshot Nashville in each of the first two games of the series. Combined with the past two seasons, the Red Wings had outshot the Predators in 12 consecutive games.
After managing only three goals against Hasek through the first two games of the series, the Predators came out shooting early and often against the 43-year-old goaltender. And the strategy paid off.
Nashville outshot Detroit 29-26 and scored two more goals than it had in the first two games combined, avoiding an 0-3 hole that only two teams in NHL history have ever come back from.
Pavel Datsyuk scored 40 seconds into the final period to give the Red Wings a 3-2 lead, and Detroit looked prime to take a strangle hold on the series.
