Found May 12, 2013 on Diehardsport:
The Detroit Red Wings were tied 1-1 with the Anaheim Ducks late in the first period when Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey took a bad penalty.  Lucky for him, Justin Abdelkader was there to save the day.  Abdelkader used some great stick placement to break up a D-to-D pass by Francois Beauchemin and was off to the races.  Abdelkader came in on Jonas Hiller and beat him five-hole with a nice deke to put the Wings up 2-1.

Trying To Figure Out Filppula

from John Niyo of the Detroit News, The Wings don't have many pending free agents on the roster, but they do have a few, and none more notable - or mystifying - than Valtteri Filppula, the 29-year-old Finnish center who has become a lightning rod for criticism this spring. In this new-and-improved, salary cap-strapped NHL, where nearly every team insists its focus is...

Red Wings win Game 7 vs. Ducks

/SUDDENJUBILIATIONINREGULATION The final minutes felt a lot like Friday night, up 3-1 until a Ducks goal would make things far too interesting, and butt clenching and stuff. The Ducks wouldn't get the equalizer this time, though, and the Red Wings would perservere in regulation and, in all, an extremely hard-faught seven-game series a lot of people, myself included, thought...
