With the score tied 1-1, Nashville's Martin Erat carried the puck deep into the offensive zone, drawing three Red Wing defenders. That allowed defenseman Klein to swoop in unguarded, and he one-timed Erat's pass into an empty net for the lead 6:25 into the final frame.
Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne made it hold up, turning aside 40-of-41 shots -- including 12 in the final period -- to earn the victory.
Gabriel Bourque also scored and David Legwand added an empty-netter for the Preds, who grabbed a 3-games-to-1 lead over Detroit in their Western Conference quarterfinal series.
