Red Wings Fall to Panthers in OT

A Pavel Datsyuk goal wasn't enough for the Red Wings Friday night, as the Florida Panthers scored in the third period and again in overtime to earn a 2-1 win over Detroit.

Goalie Scott Clemmensen made 39 saves for the Panthers, holding his team in the game early.

Detroit outshot Florida 11-2 in the first period but couldn't get on the board. It wasn't until Datsyuk scored late in the second period that the Clemmensen was beaten.

During a Detroit power play Henrik Zetterberg and Brian Rafalski fought to keep the puck near the net, where Datsyuk drove in to slide his own rebound around Clemmensen with 2:02 left in the period.

Stephen Weiss tied the game at 8:13 of the third, banging home a chance from down low after being left wide open on the far side of the crease.

Bryan McCabe won the game in overtime on a shot from the top of the right faceoff circle that slipped through Detroit netminder Chris Osgood's pads.

Osgood made 18 saves on 20 shots in his first appearance in over a week after being sidelined by illness.

Detroit will be back on the ice Saturday night in Montreal, with Jimmy Howard getting the start in net.

Lets see if the Wings can find a more creative way to get hosed tonight, shall we?

Chris Osgood is back and gets the start. Kirk Maltby is in, too, replacing the still-goalless Brad May.

Gah! Helm, there was your chance!

Both of Detroit's power plays thus far have felt like they were late in the game with a big lead. Lots of passing, very efficient, not a lot of scoring attempts. It looks nice but it's not much good in a 0-0 first period.

Jesus, Helm is fast.

Pavs bangs away at the front of the net and gets the PPG. Great reach there.

Ozzie comes up big to hold the lead. Nice.

That hit by Kronwall effectively gave Florida that two-on-one.

Yeah, not a smart play.

Wow. Way to leave a guy wide open on the back side.

At least we get the point we were screwed out of on Wednesday?

Wings were falling all over themselves at the end there. What a mess.
