The Slickers got unassisted goals in the first half by John Dolinsky and Joe Rausch. Nashville came back in the second half with a goal by Dave Strecker.

Nashville, 2-19-3, held up better than was the case last Sunday. In that game, the Diamonds were outshot by Oklahoma City 33-5. The Slickers led 19-14 in shots Friday.

The Slickers, now 15-6-3, have 123 points in the standings. Detroit, with 115, was idle Friday. The Express is at Carolina tonight.
