Wings 3, Ducks 2

Wings work power play to beat coach's old team

This summary will not be as detailed as usual since I didn't take notes on the game and was distracted by other people while watching it. I'll just give some impressions and thoughts.

- The Ducks gave the Wings 8 power play chances throughout the course of the game, including 7 before they got any power plays in return. The Wings scored quick goals on their first two chances but for some reason, they could get nothing going on the next four, including a four-minute double minor. They did score one more power play goal in the third period but they sure made the Ducks' PK units look good at times. Still, 3-for-8 isn't anything to complain about.

- Mikael Samuelsson continues to impress. He had a very nice deflection on the Wings' 3rd goal and got on the scoresheet once again. He's humble too: "I really didn't have to do anything. Jason made a great shot, the goalie went for it, and I just tipped it in. It was pretty easy."

- Pavel Datsyuk was impressive last night as well. He was much more noticeable and his goal was a very good one. Perhaps he has finally come out of his funk.

The Wings have now won 4 in a row and are 7-1-0. They face the Blue Jackets tonight in Columbus at 7:00 ET.
