Jonas Hiller gets the nod tonight when with the Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings round one match-up shifts to Joe Louis Arena for game 3.
Bruce Budreau remains confident in his 31-year-old netminder, despite his surrendering five goals in the Anaheim Ducks 5-4 overtime loss two nights ago.
The Ducks coach didn't think his team played well in front of Hiller and that may have earned the...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
It was almost a night for the record books in Anaheim.
The Ducks, who battled back from a 4-1 deficit, scored three goals in the third period to force overtime before falling to Detroit, 5-4, in the extra session.
With just 38 seconds left in the third period, Ducks defenseman Sheldon Souray was called for slashing.
While Anaheim survived the rest of the period, Gustav Nyquist...
Nick Bonino scored for Anaheim on a second-period power play -- 18 seconds after Detroit's Justin Abdelkader was ejected for a violent hit on Toni Lydman -- and the Ducks went on to a 4-0 victory Saturday night to take a 2-1 series lead over the Red Wings in the Western Conference playoffs.
Abdelkader appeared to catch Lydman square in the side of the head with his left shoulder...
The Detroit Redwings Gustav Nyquist will go down as the guy who shot the game-winning goal against Anaheim on Thursday night in OT.
The power-play was spurred on by a beautiful toe-drag by Valtteri Flippula who set up the shot.
The 5-4 victory was somewhat ugly for the Red Wings who took Game 2 of their quarterfinal series.
They blew a three-goal third period lead to set up what...
DETROIT There will be a lot of talk about Justin Abdelkader's hit on Anaheim's Toni Lydman, the Ducks' power play that followed and Abdelkader's ejection.
But that isn't why the Red Wings lost Game 3 at Joe Louis Arena, 4-0, Saturday night and gave home-ice advantage back to the Ducks.
The Wings had plenty of chances to take control of the game in the first...
DETROIT (AP) -- Nick Bonino scored for Anaheim on a second-period power play -- 18 seconds after Detroit's Justin Abdelkader was ejected for a violent hit on Toni Lydman -- and the Ducks went on to a 4-0 victory Saturday night to take a 2-1 series lead over the Red Wings in the Western Conference playoffs.
Abdelkader appeared to catch Lydman square in the side of the head with...
from Craig Custance of ESPN,
Even as Detroit opened a three-goal lead, Boudreau and the Ducks kept pushing.
“They were always talking about, Get one and we can get two,” Boudreau said. “Get one and we can get two.”
By the time Bobby Ryan tied the game late in the third period, it felt like an inevitability. The push from the Ducks got stronger and stronger as...
Justin Abdelkader's hit on Toni Lydman late in the second period of Game 3 was the turning point. He received a five-minute major and a game misconduct as a result. The Ducks then scored 18 seconds into the power play to go up 1-0.
That was all the Ducks would need, but they added some Aflac with another three goals in the third period. Goodbye, home ice; it was nice having...
After the Ducks and Red Wings split the first two games in Anaheim, the series headed to Detroit. Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was asked by the media if the goal was to win one of the two games in Detroit to regain home ice advantage.
"We're going there to win two," was the captain's response.
It was not a cocky or arrogant reply, but one of confidence...
The Detroit Red Wings appeared to be cruising to evening up their series with the Anaheim Ducks. Then the Ducks seized momentum by scoring three unanswered goals to turn a 4-1 deficit into a 4-4 tie with 2:22 remaining in the third to send the Honda Center into a frenzy. That lasted until Gustav Nyquist took a feed from Valtteri Filppula, and fired a one-timer past Jonas...
Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader was given a 5-minute major and ejected for this hit on Anaheim Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman, who left the game and will not return:
You will see what you will see, and the video will support your opinion. We are all subjective here, and in my opinion, it was a clean hit in intent that ended up very ugly--and was penalized properly.
If game one is a feeling out period, game two is definitely one of adjustments. After losing game one, the Detroit Red Wings made the necessary adjustments to get the win over the Anaheim Ducks in game two.
It appeared that the Red Wings would have an easy time of it against the Ducks until the third period happened. As Anaheim did in the regular season, they made an...
On-card Ryan Getzlaf autographs that can be had for great prices warm my collecting heart. Also, they don't make my wallet cry. It's a winning combination.Numbered 076/100, the newest Getzlaf to enter my collection of the Ducks' Captain fits the above criteria perfectly. It hails from 2007-2008 UD O-Pee-Chee Premier Penmanship, and was had for a measly $6.63 shipped.
Gustav Nyquist beat Jonas Hiller just 1:21 into overtime to bail out the Detroit Red Wings in Game 2 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Anaheim Ducks. The Wings led 4-1 in the third period, only to allow three unanswered goals by Anaheim.
But Detroit responded late in the third period, with Pavel Datsyuk nearly netting the game-winner off a pass from Henrik...
