Predators aim to step up play vs. Red Wings

Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette looks more at the process of a game, or a stretch of games, than the overall record.

As his team was collecting points in seven straight games to start February, going 5-0-2 and overtaking Winnipeg for first place in the Central Division, Laviolette knew the Predators weren't playing their best hockey. The last three wins occurred in overtime or a shootout, the last coming on Tuesday night as the result of a rally from a 3-0 deficit almost halfway through the third period against St. Louis.

So when Nashville's points streak ended Thursday night with a 4-3 loss at home to Calgary, Laviolette didn't try to put a Chuck Tanner happy face on his team's late rally that nearly produced the tying goal in the final minute.
