DETROIT (AP) -- Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored 31 seconds apart midway through the second period and Pavel Datsyuk restored a two-goal lead in the third to help the Detroit Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in the second round series. Patrick Kane scored 4:35 into the third period to pull Chicago within one. The Blackhawks celebrated as if they tied the game about a minute later, but Andrew Shaw's goal was waved off because he was in the crease. Datsyuk's goal 6:46 into the final period gave the Red Wings a 3-1 lead. The seventh-seeded Red Wings have a shot to put the top-seeded Blackhawks on the brink of elimination Thursday night in Game 4. Detroit's Jimmy Howard made 39 saves and Corey Crawford stopped 27 shots. Chicago has lost consecutive games for the first time in nearly two months. The Blackhawks began the lockout-shortened season by setting an NHL record with at least a point in their first 24 games, ended it ...

Gustav Nyquist pulls the ‘Ray Sheppard,’ dekes Crawford down and scores

Ray Sheppard was as slow as Larry Murphy and had hands of stone in terms of puckhandling, but he scored 50 goals for the Wings the year before they flipped him to San Jose for Igor Larionov, and he did so by skating in on goalies and simply waiting for them to take themselves out of the play. Gustav Nyquist made a Ray Sheppard-like deke on Corey Crawford tonight, but he only did...

Damien Brunner pelts Gustav Nyquist in the nuts during warmups

It’s common for hockey players to use a soccer ball off the ice to warm up before games.  It’s a good way to get your legs going and have some fun with your teammates and work on communicating.  Unfortunately for Gustav Nyquist, his teammate Damien Brunner never told him he was going to be throwing the ball directly at his junk.  The routine must have worked though because...

Wings thrive in lengthy penalty kill
