Who is responsible for the Red Wings’ Game 7 win over the Anaheim Ducks?

The puck's path on what turned out to be the game-winning goal.

The puck’s path on what turned out to be the game-winning goal.

(A full series recap is coming later.Also,  the James Mungro Memorial Award Update has been pushed to later in the week.)

No long intros. No short intros. No intros at all except this one telling you that there won’t be any intros. So, I guess this is actually a short intro. So one short intro. I’m confused. Moving on to the numbers.


This is essentially a power play goal since Kyle Quincey got out of the box four seconds before the goal went in. Emerson Etem gets the puck in the neutral zone, two steps by Valtteri Filppula and shoots the puck into the zone. It’s not a good dump in and hits Carlo Colaiacovo right on the stick. Colaiacovo can’t control it and gives  it back to Etem, who takes the puck, gets away from Filppula again, steps around a diving Jakub Kindl and beats Jimmy Howard short side. Howard’s angle is way off here. Not sure Kindl needed to go down, but he was taking away the pass to the man driving to the front so it’s semi-excusable. Responsibility: Carlo Colaiacovo (0.25), Valtteri Filppula (0.25), Jimmy Howard (0.25), Kyle Quincey (0.25)

Henrik Zetterberg takes a delay of game penalty. Anaheim misses a shot on the power play, Francois Beauchemin beats Joakim Andersson to the puck and fires it on net, where it hits Jonathan Ericsson in the skate and goes in. Ericsson was literally standing in the crease, not really covering anybody. Responsibility: Henrik Zetterberg (0.25), Jonathan Ericsson (0.25), Joakim Andersson (0.25), luck (0.25)



Filppula takes a low hard shot on net from the top of the circle. Dan Cleary has a good screen in front. Jonas Hiller makes the save with his pad and kicks it out to the slot where Zetterberg comes in and snaps it into the net. Responsibility: Valtteri Filppula (0.33), Dan Cleary (0.33), Henrik Zetterberg (0.33)

(Shorthanded) Justin Abdelkader picks off a D-to-D pass, gets a breakaway, goes backhand-forehand-five hole. Moist. Responsibility: Justin Abdelkader (1)

Zetterberg wins the faceoff. A shot from the point goes to the half board. Cleary chases it down and chops it to Zetterberg in the corner. Zetteberg gives a backhand pass back to Cleary who — either intentionally or unintentionally depending on how skilled you think he is — taps it between his legs to Filppula, who puts a quick shot on net. Goal. Responsibility: Henrik Zetterberg (0.33), Dan Cleary (0.33), Valtteri Filppula (0.33)

Your three four stars:

1. Justin Abdelkader (1 goal)

2. Dan Cleary (0.66 goals)

3T. Henrik Zetterberg (0.41 goals)

3T. Valtteri Filppula (0.41 goals)
