DETROIT (AP) – Jimmy Howard made 33 saves for his first shutout of the season, and Drew Miller scored an early goal as the Detroit Red Wings snapped a season-high, 5-game losing streak with a 4-0 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

3 of the losses in the Red Wings' skid came after they led 2-0. Tomas Tatar gave Detroit a two-goal lead early in the second and Niklas Kronwall made it a three-goal cushion late in the period.

Pekka Rinne gave up those three goals on just 17 shots and finished with 23 saves for the Predators. Nashville, playing on consecutive nights, has lost two straight and 4 of 5.
