CSSI Methodology Explanation here

Goalie Ratings

-2 for Gustavsson overall. -1 head-to-head.

The Goals

1st Period 03:20 - Detroit Goal: Niklas Kronwall (slap shot) from Pavel Datsyuk
Screener's assist for Abdelkader. Franzen half-assist (non-touch). Ericsson half-plus (Faceoff win cycle)

1st Period 05:55 - Calgary Goal (PP): Alex Tanguay (wrist shot) from Mike Cammalleri and Dennis Wideman
Minus-and-a-half to Kronwall (coverage). Half-minus to Miller (coverage). Kronwall ranges too far over and lets Tanguay have the middle. Miller doesn't get back.

1st Period 09:52 - Calgary Goal: Jay Bouwmeester (lucky bounce) from Lee Stempniak.
Minus for Datsyuk (coverage). Minus cleared for Franzen, Brunner. Pavel completely whiffs on this odd 3-on-2 rush.

2nd Period 16:39 - Detroit Goal (PP...?....!...!!!!!): Valtteri Filppula (wrist shot) from Kyle Quincey and Gustav Nyquist.
Self-assist for Filppula (faceoff win). Cleary half-assist (screener). Good play setup off a faceoff win.

3rd Period 05:37 - Calgary Goal: Lee Stempniak (wrist shot) from Curtis Glencross and Matt Stajan
Minus for Eaves (turnover). Half-minus for Smith (coverage). Minus for Emmerton (coverage). Minus cleared for Miller. Nobody quite picks up coverage right after the Eaves turnover... except Miller.

3rd Period 09:12 - Calgary Goal: Curtis Glencross (wrist shot) from Valtteri Filppula
Two minuses for Filppula (turnover). Minus cleared for Kindl, Lashoff, Brunner, Zetterberg. Filppula with a blind tip pass straight to a streaking forward leads to a goal.

3rd Period 10:00 - Calgary Goal: Blake Comeau (wrist shot) from Mikael Backlund
Minus-and-a-half for Franzen (turnover). Minus cleared for Abdelkader, Datsyuk, Ericsson. Minus halved for Quincey. Franzen lets his team down and Quincey can't be more-aggressive because Ericsson is getting on the ice behind the play.

Penalty Adjustments (pluses and minuses only)

1st Period 05:16 - Brendan Smith (cross-checking): Smith gives Hudler a crease-clearing love-tap in front of the net. Hudler sells this one. Half-minus for Smith.

3rd Period 00:29 - Justin Abdelkader (interference): Abby kind of picks Wideman at the blue line on a zone entry. Abdelkader will get a minus.

Bonus Ratings

-1 to Johan Franzen, Damien Brunner: Not good enough.
+1.5 to Valtteri Filppula: God-awful turnover leading to goal, yes. But Filppula was basically Detroit's best forward in this game.

Honorable Mentions:

Every mistake ends up in the back of the net in this one and the Wings don't finish like the Flames did. Whatever.
