The Sharks Clip The Wings by Momma Gouche

The Detroit Red Wings/San Jose Sharks game opened with three penalties meted out at 2:30. Both teams were trying to prove their dominance. Nicklas Lidstrom scored for Detroit at 9:30 and that score remained the rest of the period and through the second. Jimmy Howard alertness kept the Sharks from tallying in the second with having thwarted off 18 shots by the end of the period. Detroit didn’t put up much of an offensive play and were even out-shot in the third. Howard took a roughing penalty at 9:57 of the period and Joe Pavelski capitalized on it at 10:22, The game went into overtime. Detroit’s Justin Abdelkader took a double minor at 2:43, but the Wings were able to ride it out, even though they were out-shot 7-1. Ben Ferriero put the game away at 7:03 of OT and San Jose went away one up in the series. Jimmy Howard played a near faultless game until he took the penalty that created the power play goal for the Sharks in the third; which subsequently became his own albatross. A rather strange game in that one would have expected the Red Wings to have been more challenging opponent.
