What a hockey game! The Detroit Red Wings have accomplished the unlikely and have tied their series with San Jose after going down 3 games to zero. Antti Niemi was incredible, but not incredible enough as Detroit won the game 3-1 after trailing 1-0 with 10 minutes left to play. In their last 3 wins, the Wings scored the game winning goal in the 3rd period leading to exciting finishes. The first star of game 6 was unquestionably Valteri Filpulla who played his best game of the playoffs, with an honourable mention to Dan Cleary.
The Vancouver Canucks have to pleased to see this series go back to San Jose for a 7th game, as both teams are banged up and have taken a physical toll.
