Samuelsson Scores in OT as Red Wings Down Blackhawks in Game Two

Mikael Samuelsson scored 5:14 into overtime Tuesday night, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Detroit now has a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Final matchup.

Samuelsson's goal came on a three-on-one with Jiri Hudler and Valtteri Filppula.

Samuelsson blocked a pass at the Detroit blue line to start the play. Hudler carried the puck into the Chicago zone before passing off to Filppula in the slot. Filppula faked the shot and passed back over to Samuelsson to blast a one-timer past Chicago netminder Nikolai Khabibulin.

Chicago had opened the game's scoring with 7:11 left in the first period as a cross-crease pass from Jonathan Toews defelected off of defenseman Jonathan Ericsson's skate and between the pads of Detroit goalie Chris Osgood for a power play goal.

The Red Wings got on the board 3:54 later with a power play goal of their own, scored on a seeing-eye shot from the blue line by Brian Rafalski.

Dan Cleary scored a breakaway goal with 5:54 left in the second to give Detroit a lead. Cleary blocked a Brent Seabrook pass at the Detroit blueline and corralled the puck, racing in all alone to beat Khabibulin five-hole.

The Blackhawks tied things with another goal by Toews, who deflected a shot by Kris Versteeg past Osgood with 7:40 left in regulation.

Osgood finished the night with 37 saves on 39 shots. Khabibulin stopped 35 of 38 Detroit chances.

Each team scored once on the power play. Detroit had four tries with the extra attacker while Chicago had five, including 59 seconds of five-on-three time in the first period.

The series now shifts to Chicago for Games Three and Four on Friday and Sunday.


Notes: Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock announced after the game that Kirk Maltby will return to the Detroit lineup for Game Three. Maltby has been out since Game Seven of Detroit's second-round matchup with the Anaheim Ducks.

You never know what Coach Babcock has up his sleeve, with Scotty Bowman as one of their consultants I am sure he is keeping and roster changes quiet until game time.

How cute, the 'Hawks think shoving people around at the net will help them.

Abs back out there, glad to see he's okay after that hit earlier.

Ughhhh, this is terrible. Research paper vs. hockey. ): I mean, the winner is obvious, but still. Haha.

At least the Wings have not been stuck in their zone the whole time so far.

Better period but these penalties are killer. I don't like this most recent one but it's gotta get killed anyway.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/19/2009 at 9:16 PM

 

Big early kill.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/19/2009 at 9:31 PM

 

Awful call, especially considering the interference call on Homer earlier.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/19/2009 at 9:37 PM

 

Too much pressure. Needed clear the f*cking zone.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/19/2009 at 9:48 PM

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 5/19/2009 at 9:48 PM

 

Aww damn, this is a huge power play.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/19/2009 at 9:53 PM

 

I'm scared.
