The aftermath: Red wings 3, Sabres 2 (SO)


‘With just under a minute remaining, Detroit pulled goaltender Joey McDonald in favor of an extra attacker. Johan Franzen took a long wrist shot from the left point, which found its way through traffic. Miller made the save, but the rebound bounced into the slot and went right to Jiri Hudler, who fired the puck past Miller to tie the game. Detroit went on to win the game in a shootout as Hudler scored the goal to ice it.’
