Lidstrom's power-play goal gives Wings 1-0 lead

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings
DETROIT -- With plenty of traffic -- provided by Tomas Holmstrom and Robert Lang -- in front of the Colorado net, Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom whistled a slap shot from the blue line past goalie Jose Theodore for a 1-0 lead in the first period of the Wings' pre-season home opener at Joe Louis Arena.

Lidstrom's goal came on the Wings' second power-play opportunity of the period. Holmstrom and Jiri Hudler assisted on the goal at 15:56.

Wings goalie Chris Osgood was spectacular, holding the Avalanche off the board, turning away all 10 Colorado shots in the period.
