Detroit took the lead with two goals just 30 seconds apart, as the Red Wings scored on their first two shots on goal of the game.
First, just 2:28 after Handzus’ goal, the Red Wings tied the game. Drew Miller carried the puck down low and looked to be going behind the net. Instead, Miller flipped the puck toward the net, from near the goal line, and had it deflect off Quick, short-side, and into the net to tie the game 1-1 at the 6:37 mark.
Then, 30 seconds later, Jiri Hudler took the puck across the Kings’ blue line and lifted it toward the net. Drew Miller, skating through the middle of the ice, raised his stick and deflected the puck down and past Quick to give Detroit a 2-1 lead at the 7:07 mark.
