Wings hold off Hawks' kids for 3-2 win

Saturday, 09.25.2010 / 12:56 AM / Roundup

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Chicago Blackhawks left most of their big names home for Friday night's preseason visit to Detroit -- none of the players who took the ice for the defending Stanley Cup champs were older than 26. Detroit took the opposite stance, dressing many of its top players -- and one of the Wings' stars, Henrik Zetterberg, scored what proved to be the winning goal in a 3-2 victory at Joe Louis Arena.

After prospect Jan Mursak put the Wings in front, the veteran combination of Nicklas Lidstrom and Tomas Holmstrom made it 2-0 at 13:54 of the opening period when Holmstrom set up in front of goaltender Corey Crawford and deflected the puck into the net.

Jeremy Morin, part of the haul the Hawks received in the deal that sent playoff hero Dustin Byfuglien to Atlanta, cut the deficit to 2-1 with a power-play goal at 3:35 of the second. But just 72 seconds later, Zetterberg fired home a rebound after Crawford got his pad on Pavel Datsyuk's wide-open shot.

Roundup: Leafs beat Flyers in shootout marathon

Colby Armstrong scored the game-tying goal, then added the winner in the 11th round of a shootout and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Thursday night at the John Labatt Centre in London, Ontario.

With the Maple Leafs trailing 2-1 in the third period, Armstrong beat Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to send the game to overtime.

"It had to be done. I think the refs had to get to a game in Montreal," Armstrong joked of his shootout winner.

Kris Versteeg assisted on the tying goal. The Leafs acquired Armstrong and Versteeg in the offseason to shake up an offense that had trouble scoring last season.

Quote of the Day

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
