Found May 11, 2013 on Diehardsport:
Late in the first period the Detroit Red Wings had the puck deep in the Anaheim Ducks zone when this fantastic play happened.  Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg made this awesome pass to Pavel Datsyuk, who made a slick deke on Ryan Getzlaf that turned him inside out and then Datsyuk buried a backhand shot far side on Jonas Hiller.  The shot gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead and was a crucial play during their 4-3 game six overtime win. Dirty, nasty, raunchy, Datsyuk. Premier of Danglestan strikes back #motownsauce #parentalguidancesuggested — John Buccigross (@Buccigross) May 11, 2013 []

Pavel Datsyuk Opens the Scoring in Detroit Red Wings’ Game 6 Win: Video

Pavel Datsyuk has a habit of making the hardest hockey plays look absolutely simple. He did it again late in the first period of Friday night’s Game 6 between the Detroit Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks. Datsyuk chipped the puck to Henrik Zetterberg along the boards, then took a pass back from Zetterberg. The Wings’ alternate captain pulled the puck to his backhand, around Ryan...

Pavel Datsyuk doing Datsyukian things

Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk put the Wings up 1-0 on Anaheim with this gloriously gorgeous goal:

Getzlaf, Bertuzzi get into it on bench

Perhaps their discussing which ride at Disneyland they’ll go on first since Henrik Zetterberg sent this series to a Game 7 back in Anaheim… I doubt it. In fact I don’t think Betuzzi and Getlaf will be trading phone numbers anytime soon after this spirited chat midway through the third period in Game 6.

With Clutch Performance, Henrik Zetterberg Shows He’s Got a Little Steve Yzerman in Him

Henrik Zetterberg saved his best game of the series for an elimination game, showing his strength as a new captain. (Beauty Playin’ Eh, Flickr) With his team’s back firmly implanted against the wall in game six, Detroit Red Wings’ captain Henrik Zetterberg hadn’t yet found the scoresheet himself.

Valtteri Filppula’s Goal the Game-Winner as Detroit Red Wings Eliminate Anaheim Ducks: Video

Valtteri Filppula had a somewhat quiet playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks. But when the Detroit Red Wings needed him the most, Filppula delivered. The Wings’ forward assisted on Henrik Zetterberg’s early goal in Game 7, then tallied what would be the game-winning goal in the second period, backhanding one past Jonas Hiller. Filppula took a pretty pass from Danny Cleary...

Wings Keep Coming Back

from Mark Whicker of the Orange County Register (paid subscriotion) at the Centre Daily Times, Game 7 is set for Sunday night at Honda Center. It wasn't necessary. Neither was Game 6, really, but the Detroit Red Wings, spurred by jerseys in the ceiling or echoes from the '90s or something even more spiritual, have done something remarkable in this first-round...
