[Game Thread] Game 3: Detroit @ Columbus

Loading Scores

Detroit leads series 2-0

With a Game 1 win, the Detroit Red Wings were able to come out with a little extra confidence offensively in Game 2. Marian Hossa fired a shot on Mason just 14 seconds in as the Red Wings set the pace for the game early on. Detroit stayed out of the box for the majority of the game while the Blue Jackets were on the penalty kill 10 times. Detroit capitalized 3 times out of the 10 chances en route to a 4-0 shut out of Columbus.

Brian Rafalski, Pavel Datsyuk, and Jiri Hudler all scored powerplay goals while Henrik Zetterberg added the even strength goal. Chris Osgood stopped all 25 Columbus shots in his 14th playoff shutout, second most among active goalies, and his 61st playoff victory.

The series switches to Columbus for the franchise's first home playoff game. Expect Columbus fans to be loud and behind their team in a hope to reverse the team's fortune, down 2 games. Detroit had one of the best road records in the regular season and looks to continue that success away from the Joe.

What to look for: In Game 3, look for Detroit to continue putting the pressure on Columbus goalie Steve Mason while trying to alieve the pressure on Chris Osgood. Watch for continued good play out of the Hudler-Filppula-Samuelsson line for the Red Wings while the Blue Jackets just try to find some offense in general.

Game 3 starts at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on TSN, FS-D, or FS-Ohio; depending on your location.
