Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom scored a shorthanded goal in the second period and the Predators never recovered and were eliminated from the playoffs, losing 3-0 to the Red Wings.
Detroit won the series 4-2. Lidstrom's goal in the second came from a strange, bouncing, long-range shot that got past Nashville goalie Dan Ellis.
Jiri Hudler scored in the third to make it a 2-0 game, and Brian Rafalski scored an empty-net goal late.
Predators captain Jason Arnott did not play in Game 6 because of a concussion.
