Red Wings Bounce Back Against Coyotes Again

The Detroit Red Wings rallied from down 2-1 against the Phoenix Coyotes for the fourth time this season, scoring twice in the third period to take a 3-2 win.

Tomas Holmstrom and Nicklas Lidstrom led the comeback, combining on the tying and game-winning goals.

At 9:09 of the third period, Lidstrom wristed a shot from the top of the left circle, bouncing off the inside of Holmstrom's leg in the slot and past goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to knot the game up at two goals each.

Just 3:23 later, Lidstrom's blast from the blue line slipped through a screen by Holmstrom and behind Bryzgalov.

Chris Osgood kept the Red Wings in the game early and in the lead late, stopping Shane Doan on a breakaway with 30 seconds left in regulation.

Henrik Zetterberg, returning to the lineup after missing two games and the All-Star Game with a back injury, got Detroit on the board early, scoring at 3:54 of the first period. Zetterberg carried the puck into the left wing corner and threw it back out to the net, where it deflected off Bryzgalov and in.

Martin Hanzel and Ed Jovanovski countered for Phoenix.

Hanzel scored at 9:57 of the first, when a centering attempt by Niklas Kronwall deflected off of Daniel Winnik to Hanzel in the high slot, leaving him all alone to snap a shot past Osgood.

Jovanovski gave the Coyotes the lead at 8:31 of the second, scoring on a blast from the blue line through a three-player screen.

Neither team scored on the power play, with Detroit getting three chances with the extra attacker and Phoenix getting one.

Osgood made 32 saves on 34 shots. Bryzgalov stopped 36 of 39 Red Wings chances.


Notes: Niklas Kronwall left the game in the third period with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The Red Wings called it a sternoclavicular cartilage injury, which is expected to sideline the defenseman for at least a week.

Henrik Zetterberg is back in the lineup and Brett Lebda is out with a wrist injury. With Dallas Drake also returning, this puts Downey and Ellis out. Derek Meech is in for Lebda. Chris Osgood gets the start.

Must say, I have been suffering from Red Wing hockey withdrawals. Thank goodness I'll get relief tonight.

Oopps ... I just logged on and noticed no thread yet on tonights game. So I originated one to find Clark had already done so. Sorry Clark if I messed things up .... Since we now have two threads going on tonights' game, go ahead and delete my entry/thread if you like.

Haha. Yes. I was getting very ornery lately, and I couldn't figure out what was causing my poor attitude. Well, I finally figured it out! ------ Red Wing hockey withdrawal syndrome.I think it has become a certifiable illness.

I really think he needs a new nickname x]But yeah, I agree.

How about if we agree to limit using this nickname (KRONBALL, KRONBALLS) to only when he exhibits dopey play (like the one he just made resulting in a Phoenix goal --- clearing up the pass to a Coyote)?Otherwise, we can use another appropriate nickname. Yet to be determined.Sound reasonable?

Observation: The WINGS are a little off tonight in their execution.

Miscues, lapses.

Oh, I go through that myself in the summer. I find that my only relief is hauling out old video, DVDs, of games. Which reminds me, I should start thinking of recording some games now or I'll be like the squirrel trying to find the nuts he buried, but can't find any.

Caught up off the DVR... Yeah, the Wings seem a bit off. I'm not worried yet.

And I'll be merging the other thread into this one.

The Wings look flat but nothing should be taken from the Coyotes, they're really jumping.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/30/2008 at 8:36 PM

 

Good save by Osgood.

Those were cool clips of 'Mr. Hockey' & 'The Great One'. Wow. To think I wasn't even existing yet XD

Wings gotta get going soon or they're screwed.

How did Zetterberg miss the open net?!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/30/2008 at 8:43 PM

 

Observation: Phoenix definitely the better play 2nite. Must be the smelling salts the Great One is using behind the bench.

Homer! ... With his head down, being double teamed.

Great!

Posted by skyguy52 on 1/30/2008 at 9:37 PM

 

The Wings bounce back from a great shift by Phoenix to get things knotted up. Huge.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/30/2008 at 9:38 PM

 

Continues to amaze me ... Pav's Take-away abilities.

PAV is the KING of TAKE-AWAYS!

Just wish he could convert more of them to turning the Red Light on.

How far inside Bryzgalov's head is Holmstrom? This is great. I hope the Wings play Phoenix in the playoffs.

Indeed the Mule is in Bryzgalov's head .... That's what he's getting the BIG BUCKS for ..Nice to see.

Great ONE's use of smelling salts behind the bench ... actually worked in reverse to ignite the Red Wings.

Thanks WAYNE!

Posted by skyguy52 on 1/30/2008 at 9:52 PM

 

And Ozzie bitchsmacks Shane Doan!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/30/2008 at 9:56 PM

 

oh gosh... Thanks for the smelling salts!

Ozzie came up big.

My heart stopped .... I figured Ozzie would fold.

Much to my amazement.

He Didn't

My faith is renewed.

Posted by skyguy52 on 1/30/2008 at 9:57 PM

 

Ozzie .. .with the $25,000 save in the closing MINUTE.

Well worth the price of admission!

Congrats to the WINGS!

Last time you'll ever see her (unless you watch a lot of Seattle sports), with FSN Detroit switching to an arena-based postgame show hosted by Mickey York.
