DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings lead the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 going into the second intermission of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final Saturday night.
After a giveaway in the nuetral zone, Mikael Samuelsson put the Red Wings up with a wraparound goal, sweeping around the net and beating Penguins goalie Marc Andre-Fluery at 13:01 of the second period unassisted.
It was Samuelsson's second goal of the playoffs.
Detroit has outshot the Penguins 27-16 through two periods.
Pittsburgh's best chance came seven minutes in when Pens winger Pascal Dupuis had a chance on a partial breakaway, but Wings goalie Chris Osgood closed the door to preserve the tie.
In the first period, Detroit captain Nicklas Lidstrom thought he opened the scoring when a giveaway by Jordan Staal led to Lidstrom going top corner to beat Fluery.
But the goal was quickly waived off after referees called a goalie interference penalty on Tomas Holmstrom.
On the ensuing power play Osgood was spectacular, stopping a close chance by Pens forward Marian Hossa.
Osgood was solid throughout the first frame, as the Penguins outshot Detroit 12-8 with four power-play opportunities.
The Penguins are 0-for-4 on the power play.
