Red Wings dug deep today and pulled out a 3-2 win against the defending champs. With the kind of the pressure the Kings were putting on I thought it was just a matter of time before they tied the game and it was. I sure didn’t expect what happened next, though. Good play by all involved, especially Big Rig who got the winner with less than 5 seconds remaining.
More after the jump:
This was Howard’s best game in a long time. The Wings could have very easily been blown out tonight as it was clear they were tired from the compacted schedule, but Howard held onto their slim lead until the very end.
The PK has been good for 2 games now. Baby steps. Really, though, they’re doing a good job of blocking shots and clearing the puck when they have a chance. Also, Howard. Mostly Howard.
Datsyuk was flying early and I thought he might have a huge night, but seemed to hit a wall in the second just like the rest of the team. Still, I think he has found his rhythm. Expect the poi...
