Wings Cruise To A Win In Nashville

02/14/2021 at 4:46am EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

This was one of those games the Red Wings have had few of in the last couple of years.

Everything worked for the Wings, and many players made contributions (including some unexpected sources) as the Wings defeated the Nashville Predators, 4-2....

"We felt like we were playing well lately and not coming out with the two points," said. forward Adam Erne, who scored a goal. "That's our next step, coming away with these games and that was huge for us. Hopefully we can carry this to Monday."

Robby Fabbri (third goal in four games), Erne (first goal in 36 games, dating to last season), Luke Glendening (first goal in 42 games) and Anthony Mantha scored for the Wings.

Goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who hadn’t started a game since Jan. 28 because of an upper-body injury, stopped 20 shots, wasn't overly-worked but made some timely, needed saves.

"Bernie made a couple of big saves early, big chances, and you can kind of keep playing and forget about those mistakes and then you build the lead," Blashill said.

Despite the time off, Bernier felt sharp.

"A little bit tired toward the end, I didn't really get much practice time to get in shape, but overall I was seeing the puck pretty good," Bernier said.
