Red Wings at Blackhawks Game 2: Third Period Thread

Well that's more like it.

The Red Wings refused to bend over for Chicago like Game 1 and continued their strong play in the second. Goals from Damien Brunner and Brendan Smith gave the Wings their first lead in the series and they're 20 minutes away from tying this series and earning the split.

Expect the Blackhawks to throw everything they have at Detroit in the third. Jimmy Howard just became the Wings' most important player.
