After a scoreless first, the Wings got two goals in the second, the first courtesy of Johan Franzen's breakaway beauty, the second on a good bounce off Giguere's backside from a Kronwall slapshot. With a 2-0 lead headed into the third, Jimmy Howard again stood on his head for 60 minutes, including a handful of spectacular saves in the third period. After giving up a late goal with just 1:30 left, the Red Wings held on for a 2-1 win over the Avalanche!
