Found May 03, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
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 the game went on as Detroit mistakenly tried to sit on a lead against one of the biggest offensive powerhouses in the playoffs. “They just kept coming at us, coming at us. In the playoffs, you can’t really take your foot off the gas,” Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard said. “That includes all of us.” But Detroit hung on in this one, and the 5-4 overtime win taught us something about each one of these teams. First there’s no lead safe against the relentless Ducks. And the young, skilled Red Wings still have enough veteran presence to regroup while learning on the fly in the playoffs. It sets up the making of ...

League should consider intent when penalizing

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry is an enigma -- a gifted scorer who has an edge but can't seem to play a clean, physical game. During the second period of the Ducks' 3-1 victory over the Red Wings on Tuesday, Perry skated across the Wings crease, in between goalie Jimmy Howard and defenseman Nik Kronwall. Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped up in air and clipped...

Video: Detroit Red Wings Gustav Nyquist scores the game winner

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...

Discussing The Skate To Howard’s Head From Corey Perry

Do you agree or disagree with Art Regner at FoxSports Detroit, Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped in air and clipped Howard in the face with his skate. Perry received a two-minute goalie-interference penalty, which the Wings squandered.  Howard appeared momentarily dazed but continued to play. After the game, he downplayed the incident.      "His skate...

Controversial call leads to Ducks loss; Kings in 0-2 hole

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...

Steve Palumbo: Ducks/Wings Game 3: Hiller In; Souray Out & a Niedermayer Flashback

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...

Ducks take back home-ice advantage

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...

Ladies and Gents, This Was Corey Perry As A Child

This has to be the best picture ever, confirming everything I knew already about Perry.  He's on the left:  That's who Detroit has to beat .  That guy.  (Credit to Reddit)

Red Wings get even in Anaheim

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Gustav Nyquist's power-play goal at 1:21 of overtime after the Red Wings blew a three-goal lead in the third period gave Detroit a 5-4 victory over the Anaheim Ducks to even their playoff series Thursday night. Johan Franzen scored two goals and Damien Brunner had his first Stanley Cup playoff goal and two assists for the Red Wings, who survived a third...

Detroit Red Wings shock Anaheim Ducks in OT, even series

 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...

Justin Abdelkader ejected for hit on Toni Lydman

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.

Red Wings Power Over Ducks in OT

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...

Steve Palumbo: One Down, 15 To Go: Game 2 Tonight

The Ducks got off to the start they were hoping for with a 3-1 Gm. 1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. The game was tied 1-1 through two periods until the ageless wonder, Teemu Selanne, snapped a perfect dart past Wings goalie Jimmy Howard for the game-winning goal. The goal was Selanne's 10th post-season game winner and eighth as a Duck. The game was extremely intense...
