GAME 2: SJS 2 – DET 1

SAN JOSE – The Red Wings were looking to tie the series Sunday, but their hopes were extinguished when they lost and have now fallen behind 2-0 in the series to the Sharks.

Ian White gave the Sharks an early lead 4:54 into the first period and that score stayed until the third. Niclas Wallin made it 2-0 less than two minutes into the third.

It was until 13:58 of the third that the Red Wings finally got on the board with a power play goal from Henrik Zetterberg, but it wouldn’t be enough to mount a comeback.
