RED WINGS RALLY TWICE IN THIRD FOR OT WIN . . .

The Detroit Red Wings erased a pair of two-goal deficits in the third period, highlighted by Pavel Datsyuk’s tying goal with 1:48 left in regulation, before Niklas Kronwall completed the comeback by scoring 36 seconds into overtime to defeat the Dallas Stars.

* The Red Wings improved to 33-14-10 (76 points) to keep pace with the Montreal Canadiens (38-16-5, 81 points) and Tampa Bay Lightning (37-18-6, 80 points) – who also won on Saturday – in the Atlantic Division.

* Elias says the Red Wings are the first team to trail by two goals (or more) in the third period, tie the game, and fall behind by at least two goals again before eventually winning since Jan. 16, 1934 when the Toronto Maple Leafs earned a 7-4 overtime win against the Ottawa Senators. In that game, the Maple Leafs trailed 2-0 at the start of the third period before tying the game at 2-2; the Senators then pulled ahead 4-2 before the Maple Leafs forced overtime; they scored three times in the extra period.

Zetterberg, the Red Wings' captain and leading scorer, finished with 11:24 of ice time in 18 shifts and did not have a point in Detroit's 7-6 OT victory at American Airlines Center.

'Red Army' director delves into Soviet hockey legends

Saturday, 02.21.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Marrazza - NHL.com Staff Writer

In North America, the hockey teams that once represented the former Soviet Union have long had a reputation: Robotic. Emotionless. Dominant.

Westerners have long respected the former Soviet Union's national teams as some of the most prolific in hockey history. Yet despite the esteem in which Soviet hockey is widely held, many Westerners still are not sure how to feel about those teams. In the end, the prevalent feeling in the West was that the Soviet teams were hyper-efficient, machine-like units, but that at the end of the day they could never equal the heart and desire shown by the U.S. Miracle on Ice team at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics or the grit displayed by Canada in the 1972 Summit Series.

Director Gabe Polsky's documentary "Red Army" places a magnifying glass over Soviet hockey's most-storied figures, using archival footage and thorough exclusive interviews to delve inside the psyche of the men and teams that made the Soviets legends.

A 35-year-old former Yale hockey player whose Ukrainian-immigrant parents raised him in Chicago, Polsky recently discussed "Red Army" with NHL.com.

'Red Army' film focused on legendary Russian team

Saturday, 02.21.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Evan Sporer - NHL.com Staff Writer

Gabe Polsky grew up in the United States a child of parents from the former Soviet Union. He said his family's history and his heritage never really interested him for the most part, but one thing that did catch his attention was his hockey coach at age 13, also from the Soviet Union.

"It was kind of eye-opening, the style of play that he taught and the school of hockey he taught," Polsky told NHL.com. "It was really encouraging of creativity, and all these unusual training methods.

"[Anatoli] Tarasov's sort of school of hockey."

Polsky went on to play college hockey at Yale before entering a career in filmmaking. And it's that upbringing, one that combined a passion for hockey with a developed curiosity in Russian and Soviet culture, which led him to direct the documentary "Red Army," which explores one of hockey's most dominant international teams.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
