Every time Shea Weber touched the puck on Sunday, most of the 20,066 spectators at Joe Louis Arena broke into a chorus of boos.
Still miffed by the non-suspension for Weber's head-slamming move on Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg in Game 1, the fans voiced their displeasure with the Predators defenseman and captain at any and every possible instance during Game 3.
The one moment they didn't have enough time to boo Weber came when he buried his second goal of the postseason.
Weber took the puck off a scrum in front on a power play and fired a shot past Jimmy Howard to give Nashville a 1-0 lead 2:48 into the game. The Predators went on to a 3-2 victory and a 2-1 lead in the series.
"It's a tough building to play in," Weber said when asked about the booing. "We're just glad we could come in with a solid effort."
