Red Wings take 3-0 lead over Phoenix with 4-2 win; Rest lead 2-1

Post  Admin on Tue Apr 19, 2011 2:10 am

Ruslan Salei and Drew Miller had goals 44 seconds apart to open the game, and the Detroit Red Wings scored early in each period to push Phoenix to the brink of elimination with a 4-2 win over the Coyotes to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the Western Conference quarterfinals.

Salei scored 1:57 in on a one-timer from beyond the right circle after Darren Helm knocked Coyotes defenseman Ed Jovanovski off the puck behind the goal. Miller added to it 44 seconds later, redirecting a shot by Niklas Kronwall past stunned Phoenix goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.

Jimmy Howard turned back several good chances late in the first period, including 28 saves for the game.

Detroit can complete the sweep this Wednesday night in Phoenix after struggling to get past the Coyotes last season.


- Tyler Kennedy scores the winning goal to help Pittsburgh take a 2-1 series lead against Tampa Bay, winning 2-1.

- The 3rd-seed Boston Bruins got out of the hole to defeat the Canadiens, 4-2 with the series now 2-1 in favor of Montreal.

- The Philadelphia Flyers went on the road & defeated the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 to lead the series in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, 2-1.
