What a way to start, going to OT. However, the Wings kind of wanted that goal back, given it was a weird deflection by the Professor on one of the Sedin’s shots. I’ve said the Canucks could play with the best, and clearly they kept up. Hopefully, Detroit will wise up and Game 2 will turn out with a better outcome. Game 2 is a must win, IMO, because I don’t think they’ll be able to recover if they go to Vancouver down 0-2. Elsewhere, Philly won 1-0 in OT in a game where the Sens dominated regulation, and Carolina pulled out a victory against the Devils. True, Jersey was without key players, but I still expected a better showing against the Hurricanes. In the only late game of the night, the Sharks defeated Phoenix in what could be described as odd goals, with Burke coming out of the net on the game winner.
