Wings Topple Blues 5-2 with 3 Quick Goals

This was good win following the loss to Calgary in overtime. Osgood played well in net for the Wings, stopping 30 of 32 shots.

TJ Oshie put the Blues on the board first late in the 1st period. Then, the Red Wings opened the floodgates. Datsyuk, Kopecky, and Lebda all scored within 46 seconds to put the Wings from 0-1 to 3-1 in a matter of seconds in front of the St. Louis fans. Woywitka scored for the Blues to bring the game within one but Datsyuk added his second goal of the game with only 34 seconds left in the second period to put the Wings ahead 4-2 going into the final period.

Zetterberg added the final goal of the game on an empty net shot, sealing the deal for the Wings.
Hossa played 15+ minutes, which is good following his neck injury that occured from the last game against the Blues. Detroit was outshot (which is a rarity) but still managed to win big.

The next game is tomorrow against Columbus at 5pm

Player of the game: Pavel Datsyuk 2 goals, +2
