The Red Wings and Maple Leafs played the second game of their home-and-home series Saturday night where The Joe was a buzz and tensions were on the rise between the Original Six rivals. Fans packed the house and the Red Wings home crowd did not go home disappointed. The Captain, Henrik Zetterberg, saved the day and thrilled the Red and White faithful once again by scoring in sudden death overtime. Zetterberg scored his first goal of the season on a one-timer from the high slot with a mere nine seconds left in OT. Jonas Gustavsson stood on his head until the very end and shut out the Maple Leafs with 30 saves.
