The Detroit Red Wings entered Thursday’s contest against the Tampa Bay Lightning with a 2-1 series lead and they came out strong again in Game 4.
Goaltender Petr Mrazek, who shutout the Lightning in Game 3, has been very effective again tonight. At the other end of the ice, Ben Bishop had a solid start too, but Detroit managed to get one by him thanks to a hard fought series of maneuvers that was highlighted by a great pass through traffic from Henrik Zetterberg:
That was Gustav Nyquist’s first goal of the series. He broke out in 2013-14 with 28 goals and 48 points in 57 contests, but was quiet in the Red Wings’ subsequent playoff run. He hasn’t been a major producer yet in the 2015 playoffs either, but perhaps this will spark the 25-year-old.
