The Detroit Red Wings have reeled off their 10th straight victory and they’ve now scored two goals in a row, including a power play goal by Nicklas Lidstrom that was the game winner in the third period.
Lidstrom scored the tying goal in the first period of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but his shot hit the post, and the game was tied at two goals.LIDSTROM: It was a goal from me.
It was the best goal I’ve ever scored.
It gave me goose bumps, and I had to be quick on my feet to get that rebound.
It’s the best one I’ve scored.
I’m proud of myself.
The game was on.
I didn’t think I’d score a goal like that.
I had the puck in the slot, and it went over my shoulder and got to me.
We just had to keep battling and make sure it was on net.
You have to keep trying.
It doesn’t happen too often.
It’s a tough one, when you score two goals, because you’re up two goals and your goalie made some bad saves and you’re in a situation where you’re down 2-0.
You just have to go out there and play as hard as you can and make the most of the opportunities you have.
We’re going to continue to play our game and try to do the right things in the way we play.
It happens all the time, but it’s a great feeling.
We have to make sure we stay positive, stay positive.
The players are going to keep fighting, they’re going, they want to win.
We’ve been there, and we’re going through it every day.
We’re not letting anything get in our way.
We want to get this win and hopefully have a good year.
It would be nice if we have the same amount of success, but that’s the only thing I can control.
