DETROIT (Ticker) -- With a second consecutive win over the Detroit Red Wings, the Nashville Predators can leave the "Motor City" with a pair of distinctions.

The Predators can take over the top spot in the Western Conference and first place in the Central Division when they face the Red Wings for the second consecutive day.

Steve Sullivan scored his 24th goal and Scott Hartnell added his 16th on Monday as Nashville posted a 3-2 triumph over Detroit. The victory raised the Predators to 5-0-3 in their last eight games and left them one point behind the Red Wings in the standings.

The game was rescheduled from November 21 after Red Wings defenseman Jiri Fischer collapsed on the bench with cardiac arrest in the first period with Nashville holding a 1-0 lead.

The teams played a full 60 minutes but Greg Johnson's goal from November 21 was carried over into Monday's game.

Goaltender Tomas Vokoun stopped 39 shots for his 24th win of the season, giving him a 6-11-3 lifetime mark against Detroit.

Pavel Datsyuk and Mathieu Schneider scored for the Red Wings, who had their four-game winning streak stopped.
