After blowing a three goal lead in the third period, things were certainly looking down for the Wings who were hoping to tie the series up with the Ducks heading back to Detroit for Game 3.
However a power play and a fresh sheet of ice in overtime helped Valtteri Filppula find and open Gustav Nyquist who buried the shot behind Jonas Hiller giving the Wings a 5-4 win… a huge relief for the team that could’ve been decimated mentally if they were to lose this game.
The news though wasn’t entirely good for the Wings. After the game it was learned that young defenseman Danny DeKeyser – who has really stepped up in his short time with the team – will be lost for the rest of the season with a broken thumb.
Mike Babcock says D Danny DeKeyser "is done" has broken hand.

Meanwhile Johan Franzen, who had two goals tonight and has really turned it up as of late will be fine after taking a late hit in the game.
