Wings Win Holmstrom's 1000th in Shootout over Ducks

The Detroit Red Wings earned a shootout win over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, making forward Tomas Holmstrom's 1000th career game a victory.

Holmstrom didn't factor in the game's scoring but was involved in a goaltender interference play, though not in a way that some would expect given his penchant for hanging out around the crease. During the second period, Anaheim's George Parros drove to the Detroit net and knocked Holmstrom into goalie Joey MacDonald, earning Parros a two minute penalty.

Parros had opened the game's scoring with 3:43 left in the first period, redirecting a pass from Rod Pelley past MacDonald with his skate from the side of the net.

Justin Abdelkader even things up with 1:18 left, deflecting a Jakub Kindl shot past Anaheim netminder Jonas Hiller.

Neither team would score for the remainder of regulation or overtime, even as each side had a short power play in the extra frame.

In the shootout, Pavel Datsyuk and Teemu Selanne scored in the first round, then Jiri Hudler and Corey Perry missed in the second round.

Todd Bertuzzi scored the eventual winner, slowly skating right in on Hiller before making a quick move to lift the puck past him.

MacDonald stopped Bobby Ryan to preserve the win.

The Red Wings moved to within one of tying the NHL record for consecutive home victories, stretching their franchise-record streak to nineteen games.

Hiller made 23 saves on 24 shots while MacDonald stopped 29 of 30 chances.

Neither team scored on the power play, with the Red Wings having six chances with the extra attacker - including a short five-on-three in overtime - and the Ducks having seven.


Notes: The Red Wings remained without goaltender Jimmy Howard and added forward Danny Cleary to their list of injuries, as he had fluid drained from his knee and a cortizone shot on Thursday... Mike Commodore was a healthy scratch on defense.

The Red Wings look for their 19th consecutive win at home tonight while hosting the Anaheim Ducks.

The game is the 1000th of Tomas Holmstrom's career.

There's been a lot of buzz about the possibility of the Red Wings trading for Anaheim's Teemu Selanne. No new news about it, just journalists bringing it up. Personally, I'd love to see it at the right price but I don't think it'll happen.

Danny Cleary will be out of the lineup after having his knee drained and a cortisone shot yesterday. Jan Mursak is back in the lineup in his place. Jakub Kindl is in on defense with Mike Commodore out. Joey MacDonald gets another start with Jimmy Howard on the shelf and Ty Conklin having played himself out of a job.

The Wings will be in their white sweaters with the Ducks in black, as it should be at home (I imagine this means the Ducks are wearing their alts).

Game time is 7:30 PM with FSD having the TV.

Wings would let Parros score, even if it was a weird deflection.

For a sold out arena, a lot of season ticket holders didn't show up...

Really???? One goes our way?

O'Halloran blowing off a goal because Holmstrom was near the crease is nothing new. That it went in Detroit's favor is a surprise.

Damn post.

Seems to me that it's always that way....What's up with that?

I'd say they're not really sellouts and the Wings are afraid to say as much but I don't know for certain.
