Video: Andersson’s long wrist shot beats Crawford, gives Red Wings the lead

May 27, 2013, 10:06 PM EDT

The Detroit Red Wings have the Chicago Blackhawks on the ropes.

The Red Wings, with a win tonight, can eliminate the 2013 Presidents’ Trophy winners in the sixth game of the Western Conference semifinal. Joakim Andersson‘s long wrist shot that somehow eluded Blackhawks’ goalie Corey Crawford just past the midway point of the second period gave the Red Wings a one-goal lead heading into the final 20 minutes of play.

The Blackhawks quickly tied the game at 2-2 thanks to a goal from Michal Handzus 51 seconds into the third period.

    Anyone else notice the blown offside call that lead to the Blackhawks 3rd goal?

      wake up. watch the replay and quit making phony excuses.

      If a player carries the puck back into his own zone, the offside player doesn’t have to touch up. The call was the right one.

    Absolutely blown offsides call, Toews never touched up.

    F_ _ k Olczyk!!! I feel like I’m watching a game with a homer Chicago fan?

    You are. NBC loves the Blackhawks. They can do no wrong.

      Ratings, all about ratings. Gotta have a game seven to sell more advertising and Pierre and Eddie can listen to themselves talk some more.

    • countduku - May 27, 2013 at 10:56 PM

      now the excuses go to blaming the tv networks…… OK…The ratings???…OK…. How about the red wings just plain got smoked in the third period.

    That piss poor penalty shot decided this game.

    • countduku - May 27, 2013 at 11:01 PM

      I thought it was a great shot. It froze Howard and made his knees buckle. Piss poor was the goaltending effort in the third period.

      • stakex - May 28, 2013 at 1:17 AM

        The shot was great…. the call was terrible.

  6. kiopta1 - May 27, 2013 at 10:46 PM

    Oh and smith sucked again.

    • countduku - May 27, 2013 at 11:04 PM

      correct, but he will whine about something before game 7. He just hasn’t fiqured out what yet.

  7. jeffchadwick - May 27, 2013 at 10:48 PM

    Just an embarrassingly bad penalty shot call. Nothing else to say.

    • countduku - May 27, 2013 at 10:59 PM

      what game were you watching??? The announcers even said it was an obvious penalty shot call. It was a two handed slash. watch the replay, then consider yourself wrong. Wow, The excuses just keep piling up. It’s never the fault of the horrible red wing defence, is it?

      • stakex - May 28, 2013 at 1:30 AM

        I don’t care who wins this series (actually, a Hawks win helps my bracket), but it was a terrible call. You see “slashes” like that on every breakaway and they are almost never called… let alone called a penelty shot.

        Also, the announcer didn’t say it was an obvious penelty shot at all. In fact Olczyk called it a “very questionable” call several times. So clearly you were the one watching a different game.

      • hockeydon10 - May 28, 2013 at 8:52 AM

        The fact that Chicago homer Olczyk called it “very questionable” should be all the evidence Chicago fans need. Both teams have committed far worse during breakaways with not even a penalty called, let alone a penalty shot. No wonder players and fans continually complain that nobody know exactly what a penalty is any more.

      • countduku - May 28, 2013 at 11:11 AM

        when you take Ed “No check” Olcyzk’s word, you make your first mistake. On the Canadian CBC hockey night in Canada broadcast, both announcers, and all 4 studio commentators (6 total) all agreed that the Penalty shot was the absolute correct call, and the only one the ref could have possibly made. Look up the rule, watch the replay, then accept the fact that red wing fans are whining about a good call. If it was Datsyuk on a breakaway, would they be saying it was a non call??? I didn’t think so. It’s always somebody elses fault for the fact that their defence constantly misses their assignments, isn’t it. #pleasequitthecryingalready
