GAME 6: SJS 1 – DET 3

DETROIT – For the second time in these playoffs, a team down 3-0 in a series has forced a Game 7. First it was Chicago and Vancouver. Now, it’s Detroit and San Jose.

A combined total of 45 shots were thrown at both Antti Niemi and Jimmy Howard, but both stood tall in the first and second periods and neither one budged, keeping the game scoreless through two.

The Red Wings were out-shooting the Sharks 32-13 through two periods. The Sharks started to find life in the third and Logan Couture opened the scoring and gave them a 1-0 lead.

That was all the Sharks could muster as the Red Wings once again took control. Henrik Zetterberg tied the the game just over halfway through the period and Valtteri Filppula gave them the lead 1:56 after Zetterberg.

Darren Helm sealed the win with his empty-net goal and the Red Wings have now tied the series and the hockey world will wait with anticipation for what will happen in Game 7.
