Wings take Game One in First Round against Flames, 4-1

by Caitlin Muciek

The Detroit Red Wings took an early lead in the playoffs Thursday night with a 4-1 win against the Calgary Flames in game one.

The Wings brought the fans to their feet with an early goal by Valtteri Filppula within the first five minutes of the first period.

They further capitalized on their lead with a goal by Nicklas Lidstrom just over four minutes later.

The fans continuously chanted, “Lets go Red Wings!” to cheer on their Central Division Champs.

Two more goals were scored by Pavel Datsyuk and Mathieu Schneider in the second period to make it 4-0.

The early lead is great for the team,” said Wings fan Gary Balkus, who attended game one.

It definitely boosted their momentum for this game, and hopefully it can stay with them throughout the rest of the series. They really gave us something to cheer about tonight,” he said.

The Flames extinguished the Wings’ hope of a shutout with a goal by Alex Tanguay at the five-minute mark of the third period.

Playoff tensions could be felt within the arena by the numerous scuffles between players throughout all three periods of the game. The refs quickly ended the brief sparring match-ups.

Tempers ultimately boiled over resulting in a large pile up of players behind Calgary’s net with only 1:24 left in regulation. If the antagonistic energy remains between the teams this will pan out to be an exhilarating series.

The Stanley Cup hungry fans congratulated the Wings with a standing ovation for their extraordinary performance.

The Wings proved they were playoff ready as they ambushed their opponent’s net and out shot the Flames 46 to 20.

Though it was an exciting start, the series is nowhere near over.

Both teams will take to the ice Sunday afternoon for game two.
