Red Wings Come From Behind To Stay Alive
When the San Jose Sharks went up 3-1 in the 3rd Period of Game 5 with a 3-1 lead in the series, the future looked bleak for the Detroit Red Wings. That was until Pavel Datsyuk took the team on his back as the Wings scored 3 unanswered goals en route to a dramatic 4-3 win. Goaltender Jimmy Howard stood on his head making 39 saves as the series heads back to Detroit for Game 6. When the team went down 3 games to 0 their probability of winning the series was about 3%, but now it has risen to about 30%. The smart money is still on San Jose to win one of the next two, but Detroit has momentum and has at least made this series interesting.
