You’ve got Tommer (Thompson) going out for the shootout and putting on an incredible move. Linus (goalie Linus Ullmark, who made 35 saves) stepping in and playing out of his mind, making huge saves.Jeff Skinner and Thompson scored for Buffalo in regulation.“I think first of all Womens Andrew Cogliano Jersey , I have to give credit to our guys, and that’s everybody that’s played through these six games in nine nights,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “It has been a grind and the guys continue to find energy and ways to win hockey games. It wasn’t pretty, it was sometimes sloppy, but we found a way to win.”Dylan Larkin Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey , Anthony Mantha scored for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard stopped 33 shots. Andreas Athanasiou scored in the shootout for the Red Wings.“We had enough chances to win the hockey game for sure,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. “We got to score on our chances. When you get that many breakaways you got to find ways to score.”Ullmark denied Mantha, about eight minutes into the second period, and Larkin Brandon Montour Jersey Kids , a little over six-and-a-half minutes into the third, on breakaways.“I give a lot of credit to Linus. For him to make those huge breakaway saves was great,” Housley said.Mantha tied it at 2, with 6:28 left in the third. He poked in the rebound off the goal post. It was Mantha’s seventh goal and came four seconds after a Detroit power play ended.Thompson gave the Sabres a 2-1 lead 7:40 into the third period with a power-play goal on a one-time slap shot from the left circle.
