VIDEO: Gustav Nyquist’s OT game winner

If you missed it late last night (and still haven't seen the highlight all day), here's Gustav Nyquist's OT game winner against the Anaheim Ducks, which evened the series at 1-1: 

Valtteri Filppula's drag was remarkable — Datsyukian even. He made Corey Perry drop to his knees and look like the chump that he is and then was able to make a backhanded pass to Nyquist on the left side of the net. Nyquist then one-timed it over the glove of a flailing Hiller. And they celebrated. 

After blowing a three-goal lead, winning 1:21 into OT was not expected. Filppula and Nyquist teaming up for a goal like that, a goal that would make hummingbirds sing showtunes as women stretch out their jaws, was very low on my list of expectations. I thought the Red Wings were destined to lose a back breaker. I'm glad I was wrong. Now I think I'll watch the above highlights again.
