NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ian White and Cory Emmerton scored in the first period, and the Detroit Red Wings got the best revenge against the Nashville Predators with a 3-2 victory Friday night that evened the opening series 1-1.

Johan Franzen also scored, and Jimmy Howard made 24 saves as the Red Wings answered Nashville defenseman Shea Weber being fined only $2,500 for smashing Henrik Zetterberg's head into the glass at the end of Game 1 on Wednesday night.

Todd Bertuzzi dropped the gloves with Weber 1:36 into the game and landed a good punch before they were separated.

Game 3 is Sunday in Detroit.

Weber and Andrei Kostitsyn scored for Nashville, which missed a chance for its first 2-0 series lead in its seventh postseason. The Predators had yet another sold-out crowd, yet the NHL's best power play in the regular season is 0 of 12 in the series.
