(Sports Network) - The top two teams in the Central Division will battle tonight in the Motor City, as the Detroit Red Wings welcome the Nashville Predators to Joe Louis Arena.

Both of these clubs have been extremely hot of late, especially the division- leading Predators, who have won six straight contests. Nashville currently has 67 points and holds a three-point edge over Detroit, who have won four in a row, for the top spot in the Central.

The Preds are coming off Monday's victory over the visiting Calgary Flames. David Legwand scored a goal and added two assists to lift Nashville to the 5-3 triumph at Gaylord Entertainment Center.

Tomas Vokoun made 20 saves while Martin Erat had a goal and an assist for the red-hot Predators, who are 14-3-0 in their last 17 games.

The Red Wings also played on Monday and earned a home win over the Montreal Canadiens. Dominik Hasek stopped all 23 shots he faced for his sixth shutout of the season to help Detroit post the 2-0 victory over the Habs.
