NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The Detroit Red Wings have been the class of the Central Division for over a decade. But they may have a tall task this season in beating out Steve Sullivan and the Nashville Predators.

Sullivan recorded three assists and the Predators erupted for five goals in the second period en route to a 6-2 triumph over the struggling Red Wings.

It was the fourth victory in the last five games for Nashville, which finished second in the Central last season while Detroit cruised to its fifth consecutive division title.

But the Predators have jumped out to a tremendous start in 2005-06, winning 15 of their last 19 games after opening the campaign with three straight losses.

Saturday's victory was even more impressive considering Nashville was without star goaltender Tomas Vokoun, who is nursing an injured wrist. Chris Mason filled in admirably, turning aside 32 shots to win for the second time in as many career meetings with Detroit.
