Let's get the hell out of Detroit - for good.
The Anaheim Ducks defeated the Detroit Red Wings in overtime by a score of 3-2 to take a 3-2 lead in their Western Conference Quarterfinal series. Kyle Palmieri, Ryan Getzlaf, and Nick Bonino scored for Anaheim and Jonas Hiller stopped 29 shots.
Preview and GameThread for Game Five between the Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings at Honda Center, including who's hot, who's not, leading scorers, and even some fearless predictions about tonight's action.
The first four games of this series have provided us with plenty to think about, and when all is said and done, plenty to remember. But right now, it's the next couple games that matter.
There are homers and then there is Bill Simonson. His love for the Detroit Red Wings is clear; his grasp of reason and common sense, not so much.
The Ducks led early, but faded as the game wore on to a point where they couldn't even really mount an attack in Overtime and the series is tied back up at two games a piece heading into Game 5 Wednesday.
The Ducks look to extend their series lead to 3-1 without the services of Toni Lydman, and of course the Wings will miss Justin Abdelkader due to suspension. At the risk of sounding crass and unfeeling, that's not a terrible trade-off for Anaheim.
