Via MLive, Detroit Free Press and the Daily Tennessean.

Mike Babcock:

“It’s good points for us and it’s on the road and we played (Thursday) night,” Red Wings Coach Mike Babcock said. “Nashville’s got a real good hockey club and we know that the battle in our division is with Nashville. I thought this was a good road win for us, I thought we played well, I thought we attacked the net pretty good.”

Manny Legace:

“It’s a huge, huge win for us,” Legace said. “Every time we play these guys, it’s a four-point game. We weathered their storm early, steamrolled the rest of the way through.”

Steve Yzerman:

“No, it changes as soon as the puck drops the next time we play them,” he said. “We’re obviously pleased to get the win, we’re so close in the standings. But we play seven more times, and I expect it just to go back and forth. They’re a very good team. That was a really good game. Don’t read any more into it than that.”

Vernon Fiddler:

“If we want to beat them, I know one thing for sure and it’s that we have to stay out of the box,” Predators center Vern Fiddler said. “They’ve got the No. 1 power play for a reason. There’s a lot of elite guys that make that power play go.”
