Red Wings Fall to Ducks on Overtime Penalty Shot

Bobby Ryan scored on a penalty shot 2:50 into overtime Wednesday night, lifting the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Ryan cleanly beat Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard on his glove side. Howard then broke his stick over the goal post, venting his frustration at the call that led to the penalty shot.

Pavel Datsyuk scored the Red Wings' lone goal at 5:10 of the second period, banking a shot from the left corner off of Ducks' netminder Dan Ellis and into the net with Detroit on a power play.

Jason Blake tied the game up 1:54 into the third period, blasting a shot from the high slot past a screened Howard.

The Red Wings ended the night 1-for-9 on the power play, including 1:33 of 5-on-3 and 1:47 of 4-on-3 in overtime. The Ducks were scoreless on four power play tries but capitalized on the penalty shot.

Howard stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced. Ellis made 28 saves on 29 shots.

The Red Wings are back in action Thursday night in San Jose.

Notes: Brian Rafalski missed his third consecutive game with back spasms. Jakub Kindl reminded in the lineup in his place... Johan Franzen returned to the team after missing one game for the birth of his son. Kris Draper was a healthy scratch to make room in the lineup.

The Ducks have 8 penalty minutes already?

Wasted long power play is gonna bite the Wings in the ass later. Lazy game.

Well, I have a meeting to go to. Hopefully, the Wings will get something going while I'm away.

That's why you throw it at the damned net. It's Dan f*cking Ellis. Put the puck at him.

I'm back. Can you tell me about the Pasha goal?

That looked innocent but Jimmy didn't see it.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/2/2011 at 11:59 PM


Jimmy with a hell of a stop on Perry.

Saw that coming when the Wings blew the power play. That said, Ryan went to his knees really easy to draw that penalty shot.

There were so many weak and non calls that happened. In fact, I am pretty sure the hooking call on Getzlaf had to due with his arguement with the ref during a commercial break. It was no surprise Ryan went down that easy.
