Detroit Red Wings vs Vancouver Canucks
Red Wings 2
The Detroit Red Wings finally get their heads straight and pull out some awesome play to pull up a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.
For the first time in roughly 5 games, the Red Wings finally came out and had a good start to their first period. They did all the little things right, and dictated a lot of the flow of play through the period. Despite this, the Canucks would get on the board first by a slick double-Sedin play. Entering the zone, Henrik Sedin threw the puck to his waiting twin, Daniel Sedin at the bottom of the faceoff circle, who threw the puck at the net. Jimmy Howard was mildly screened by a few Wings players and couldn’t track the puck properly to get back in the net in time, and it bounced off the far post and in at 14:12 for a 1-0 Vancouver lead. Shots through the first were 12-7 in favor of Detroit.
