Detroit at Anaheim - Game 6
Bobby Ryan had dumped the puck into the Red Wings' zone and Osgood had gone behind his net to make a clear. Andrew Ebbett, however, got to the puck at the same time as Osgood and challenged the Detroit goaltender for possession, getting a pass off to Ryan. With Osgood stuck behind his goal, Ryan made a move, but Ericsson broke up the play and Niklas Kronwall sent the puck over the glass.
After Niklas Kronwall was given a two-minute penalty for shooting the puck over the glass, Ryan Getzlaf decided to take things into his own hands. He carried the puck from his own end of the ice all the way into Detroit territory. He then jammed on the brakes and dealt a pass back to Chris Pronger at the point. Pronger then slid it over to Scott Niedermayer, who fired a shot on goal that was stopped by Chris Osgood. Getzlaf, however, was there to stuff home the rebound.
The best player for the Ducks came through again, this time giving Anaheim a crucial 1-0 lead in this desperation game.
With an odd man rush, the Red Wings brought the puck into the Anaheim zone with a glaring scoring opportunity. Out of nowhere, a diving Perry broke up an attempted pass towards the net. As play continued at the other end of the ice, Perry hustled back and found himself where he is the most useful -- in front of the net. Ryan Getzlaf had the puck at the point and released a shot that Perry tipped through the five-hole of Chris Osgood.
Perry’s deflection goal gave the Ducks a commanding 2-0 lead, one his team would have never had if not for his work on the opposite end of the ice.
Pavel Datsyuk controlled the puck in the Anaheim zone looking to create some sort of offensive threat for the Red Wings. Valtteri Filppula set a subtle screen on defenseman James Wisniewski, creating more space for the playmaker Datsyuk. The Russian star then drew Scott Niedermayer towards him and fed the puck over to Filppula, who walked in from a tough angle and tried to backhand a shot five-hole on Hiller, but the Ducks' goalie closed the gap immediately and stopped the scoring chance on the doorstep.
Jonas Hiller stopped 38 shots in the contest, forcing a Game 7 Thursday night in Detroit.
Henrik Zetterberg controlled the puck along the top of the circle in Anaheim's zone, and then fed a pass down low to Jiri Hudler, who delivered a quick one-time pass to Franzen. "The Mule" was planted in front of the net, where he scores most of his goals, and tipped the puck over Jonas Hiller's pad to get the Wings on the board.
This perfect tic-tac-toe play gave Detroit a spark as they trailed, 2-1, with just 2:25 remaining in the game.
FINAL SCORE: Ducks 2, Red Wings 1
