Predators top Red Wings 3-1, take 3-1 series lead

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (AP) -

Kevin Klein scored a go-ahead goal 6:25 into the third period and Pekka Rinne made 40 saves, lifting the Nashville Predators to a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night and a 3-1 lead in the first-round Western Conference playoff series.

The Predators can eliminate Detroit in Game 5 on Friday night in Nashville.

Predators rookie Gabriel Bourque broke a scoreless tie 1:55 into the third period.

Detroit's Niklas Kronwall tied it 1:19 later with a power-play goal that was waved off on the ice but reversed by video review.

The Red Wings pulled goalie Jimmy Howard to add an extra skater with 1:31 left, but had to put him back in the net because Zetterberg was called for high-sticking with 55.8 seconds left.

David Legwand's power-play goal sealed the win with 39 seconds left.
