Red Wings Get Playoff Revenge, Defeat Sharks


Pavel Datsyuk is usually the one providing the jaw-dropping, highlight-reel goals for the Detroit Red Wings. This time, his linemate got into the act.

Henrik Zetterberg batted a puck out of the air from the slot for one of his two goals that helped Detroit get a small token of revenge for last season’s playoff elimination, beating the San Jose Sharks 5-3 on Tuesday night.
