Filppula scored on a backhand shot from the left circle with 6:07 left for his fourth goal. Holmstrom and Jokinen traded power-play goals early in the third period. White tied the game 2-all, 7:38 into the second period when his harmless-looking shot from the top of the right circle got through Kiprusoff.
