Big E Beats Buzzer as Wings Down Kings

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings

The Wings scored the first two goals early, but the Kings scored a last-minute goal to close out the first with the Wings up 2-1. Then the magic of Jimmy Howard happened. Again and again, Howie made incredible saves, controlled the puck, and never let one past him all game. But, with 53 seconds left, Alec Martinez scored to tie it up.

We're headed to overtime....just kidding. With 5 seconds left, a loose puck came towards Ericsson at the top of the right circle and his slapper trickled through the legs of Jonathan Quick as 20,066 fans threw their arms in the air. To say the least, the whole nation just saw what was probably the most exciting game of this young season.
