The Anaheim Ducks made a push in the second period of Game 6 against the Detroit Red Wings, generating more of an offensive attack as they look to close out this series.
But Red Wings’ goalie Jimmy Howard clearly has other plans. He made a nice pad save off Teemu Selanne, who was all alone in front of the Detroit net following a two-on-rush for Anaheim. That save maintained the Red Wings’ 1-0 lead three minutes into the middle period, however Kyle Palmieri has since tied the game for the Ducks.
The Pittsburgh Penguins ended a long run of playoff overtime struggles on Wednesday … and are now one win away from ending the Washington Capitals’ season.
Many expected the Penguins to crater on defense without Kris Letang (they were 2-8-1 in the regular season without him). While there were shaky moments, Pittsburgh emphasized its speed and other strengths in taking a 3-2 overtime thriller against Washington.
With that, the Penguins’ series lead grows to 3-1.
