DETROIT RED WINGS 2 - 1 SAN JOSE SHARKS (SO)
Apologies, but I have to hit the books early tonight, so I'll skip to the Top 3 Wings:
(Honorable mention to the Eaves/Helm/Draper unit.)
#3 ~ Nick Lidstrom. 27:31 of ice time. He has said publicly that the guys have to tighten things up, and only two goals have been given up over the last three games. I never felt overly threatened by the Sharks' attack in this game. Nick's the anchor. He is perfect.
#2 ~ Chris Osgood. Really toiled between #1 and #2 here ... Ozzie made more saves in this one than on Tuesday and was challenged a bit harder, having to come up big in the shootout.
#1 ~ Henrik Zetterberg. You knew it from his first shift. Game-tying goal and Game-winning goal in the shootout with a disgusting move on Nabokov. He was on like Ansar Khan tonight. (You have to say "on" with sort of a thick Michiganian accent for it to totally rhyme with "Khan" ....... you know what, fuck it.)
