2nd Red Wings Goal (Nyquist), Even

  • Detroit Contributions
    J. Franzen – blocks Lovejoy’s dump-in so the puck bounces in the neutral zone to Zetterberg
    H. Zetterberg – picks up the bouncing puck in the neutral zone, curls near his blue line, and passes it up to Nyquist entering the Ducks zone
    G. Nyquist – carries the puck into the left side of the Ducks zone, fakes a slap shot at the top of the faceoff circle, then takes a wrist shot from just above the faceoff dot that beats Andersen’s glove
  • Anaheim Faults
    B. Lovejoy – tries to dump the puck into the Red Wings zone, but hits Franzen, so the puck stays in the neutral zone as the Ducks are trying to change

2nd Ducks Goal (Beleskey), Even

  • Anaheim Contributions
    R. Kesler – knocks Smith off of the puck behind the Red Wings net and passes it in front of the net
    M. Beleskey – streaks into the slot and fires the loose puck past Howard’s blocker
  • Detroit Faults
    B. Smith – gets the puck below the goal line in his own zone and starts skating it behind the net, but doesn’t play it quickly enough before getting knocked off of it by Kesler for a turnover
    G. Nyquist – doesn’t stay with Beleskey as he streaks into the slot, allowing him to get the shot off unimpeded

3rd Ducks Goal (Getzlaf), Even

  • Anaheim Contributions
    R. Getzlaf – blocks Franzen’s attempt to move the puck up the boards, knocks the puck into the Red Wings zone, then lifts the stick of Kronwall to steal the puck in the right corner, skates the puck to the front of the net, and lifts a backhander over Howard’s glove
    R. Kesler – stays at the bottom of the left faceoff circle, which keeps Ericsson at the crease watching for the pass instead of stepping up on Getzlaf coming to the net
  • Detroit Faults
    J. Franzen – tries to play a puck up the boards from his blue line that hits Getzlaf and caroms back into Detroit’s zone
    N. Kronwall – tries to skate down into the right corner of the Red Wings zone with the puck but has his stick lifted (partially hooked) by Getzlaf and also gets his skate caught in the boards, so he falls down and loses the puck to Getzlaf
