[Game Recap] Wings beat Devils 3-1

Well, it looks like New Jersey is going to have to wait another year before they have a chance to win a game at the Joe. The Devils have yet to beat Detroit in Joe Louis Arena since 1996.

Hossa continued to rack up the offensive points with two goals in tonight's 3-1 win. His first goal came just 3:30 into the game on a quick shot from below the left circle. It was a weird angle, which is why I was surprised that it went in. However this is why head coach Mike Babcock tells his players to shoot more because even if it's an unlikely angle, you just never know. About halfway into the second period, Hossa struck again on a wrist shot again from the left circle and beat goaltender Kevin Weekes. Pavel Datsyuk had passed the puck to Hossa who was in a 2-on-1 with Tomas Holmstrom. Hossa now has eight goals and 17 points.

New Jersey's only goal came in the second period a little over six minutes before Hossa's second goal. Johnny Oduya had taken a shot from the point and Zach Parise was able to tip it in past Chris Osgood, who made 24 saves in the effort.

The final goal of the game came from (drumroll please) Kirk Maltby! It was his first goal of the season as he put in a loose puck. Interestingly enough, Andreas Lilja and Tomas Kopecky were given the assists.

Detroit advances to 9-2-2 and will play next this Tuesday at home against Pittsburgh.
