Red Wings Score Three Unanswered Goals to Beat Flyers, 3-2

The Detroit Red Wings scored three times in a row Tuesday night, bouncing back from down 2-0 to earn a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Wings didn't score their first goal of the night until only 2:33 remained in the second period, by which time Scott Hartnell and Joffrey Lupul had already scored for the Flyers.

Hartnell scored on a partial breakaway with 3:26 left in the first period, fighting off Marian Hossa while coming down the right wing and beating Detroit netminder Chris Osgood with a snap shot.

Just 4:28 into the second, Lupul scored on an odd-man rush to extend the lead for Philadelphia.

Pavel Datsyuk got the Red Wings on the board, skating down the left wing and putting a quick shot past Flyers' goalie Martin Biron.

At 9:47 of the third, Datsyuk grabbed the puck on the left wing board and fed it to Johan Franzen. Franzen beat Biron on a one-timer from just inside the right faceoff circle, tying the game.

Just 1:38 later Henrik Zetterberg gave Detroit the lead, scoring off a pass from Mikael Samuelsson as Jonathan Ericsson led a rush up-ice.

Osgood stopped 24 of 26 shots on the night to earn his third win in a row. Biron made 45 saves on 48 shots against.


Notes: The win moved Osgood into sole possession of eleventh place all-time in the NHL... The Red Wings dressed eight defensemen as the were without forwards Valtteri Filppula and Tomas Holmstrom.
