Happy birthday, Viktor Arvidsson.
On the day he turned 28, the Predators winger recorded his third-career hat trick, and Nashville scored seven against the Red Wings for the second time this season to defeat Detroit by a 7-1 final on Thursday night at Little Caesars Arena.
The result gives the Preds wins in six of eight tries against the Wings to finish the season series and victories in 11 of their last 13 overall outings to continue their hold on the fourth spot in the Central Division.
After Detroit got the game’s first goal, Nashville tallied seven unanswered, and Arvidsson finished off his hat trick when he converted on a penalty shot in the third period en route to registering quite an outing for him and his hockey club.
