Red Wings force Game 7 with 3-1 win over Sharks

Post  Admin on Tue May 10, 2011 11:34 pm

Henrik Zetterberg and Valtteri Filppula scored less than two minutes apart in the third period as the Detroit Red Wings rallied again for a 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night, forcing a decisive seventh game after trailing 3-0 in the second-round series.

San Jose’s Logan Couture scored early in the third period, but Zetterberg tied it with 9:22 remaining, and Filppula scored the winner with 7:28 left.

Darren Helm added an empty-net goal. Every other game in the series was decided by one goal. And similar to Game 6, Detroit scored the last three goals of Game 5 to win, 4-3.

The Red Wings are the second team this season to erase a 3-0 series hole. Chicago did it in the first round before losing Game 7 at Vancouver. Philadelphia came all the way back last year in the second round, winning the final four games against Boston.

Detroit will now head to San Jose for Game 7 this Thursday night and the winner will travel north to Vancouver to face the Canucks in the Western Conference Finals.
