Here’s the game-tying goal (note the unbelievable […]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLvFEqvk024 Pavel Datsyuk returned to the ice on Tuesday night and probably should’ve scored a goal, a goal that would’ve lifted the Red Wings to a regulation win. Instead, they get a point by surviving ’til overtime. Here’s what Winging It In Motown said about the game/play: Detroit was basically robbed out of two points […]
