I'm writing this blog in retrospect but there's not much to say. Goal scorers for the were McLeod and Brunette (twice). Theodore made 31 saves on 35 shots as the Red Wings carried a 4-2 lead into the third period. The Avs fought back, coming within one goal of Detroit's lead, but Chris Osgood came up huge for the Wings.
Paul Stastny played just seven minutes. He suffered another injury and left the game early.
Peter Forsberg return for the first time in the series. He can be considered the "goat" for a Detroit goal in which he left his man wide open at the point in order to deliver a check.
Cody McLeod registered his first career playoff goal as TJ Hensick made his playoff debut and registered his first career playoff assists.
Three Stars of the Game
1. TJ Hensick (Tons of energy, put pucks on net, assist)
2. Andrew Brunette (Two goals, leading scorer in playoffs for Avs)
3. Joe Sakic (Two more assists for Super Joe.
