Oilers stop Wings from Breaking a Record at Home

by Caitlin Muciek
as4913@wayne.edu

The Wings' winning streak ended at the hands of the Oilers, and they fell just shy of their franchise record of 14 home wins set 42 years ago.

The first period seemed promising for the Detroit Red Wings as Zetterberg scored his 33rd goal to give the Wings an early lead during a two-man advantage power play, within the first five minutes of the game. Shortly after, they added to their lead with another power play goal by Holmstrom.

The Edmonton Oilers then cut their lead in half with a power play goal of their own by Smyth. There was a total of 20 minutes of penalties called in the first period, creating a very choppy atmosphere.

The Oilers then tied the game at 2-2, in the second period, with the first even strength goal of the game. This goal came just after the halfway point of the game. Defensive play continued until the Wings regained their lead with a goal by Filppula, with just four minutes left in the second period.

The Oilers would again tie up the game at 3-3 in the third. After a few brief scuffles between players, neither team had broken the tie, sending the game into overtime. Just as in the third period, neither the Wings nor the Oilers could capitalize in overtime, which forced the game into a shoot-out to break the tie.

The lineup for the Wings in the shootout was Zetterberg, Datsyuk, and Williams, and for the Oilers it was Smyth, Hemsky, and Sykora. With the Wings unable to beat the opposition’s goaltender, Roloson, the Oilers won with Smyth’s goal in the shootout. The final score was 4-3.
