WINGS FOIL THE ISLES.....Sa, 1/31/15

>>caption:  PHOTO PENDING


    Two of the top teams in the
NHL Eastern Conference met in
a Saturday matinee at The Joe
and the Red Wings beat the New
York Islanders 4-1.

    Detroit's sixth win in seven
games and sixth straight at home
vaulted the Wings into second
seed in the East, tied with Montreal
at 67 standings points but the Habs
have played fewer games.

    Four different goal scorers including two defensemen lit the lamp for
the Red Wings.

    Tomas Tatar scored his Detroit team-leading 21st goal of the season
5:29 into the game, a power play wrist shot from the left circle to the
top right corner past Isles second string netminder Chad Johnson.

    Brendan Smith (#3) made it 2-0 for Detroit with 46.4-sec left in the

    JANUARY 31, 2009:     Alex Ovechkin scored twice (#32 & #33) in the 3rd-Per to snap at 2-all tie and lifted the Washington Capitals to a 4-2 Saturday matinee home ice win over the Red Wings. Ovechkin briefly lost control of the puck, then passed it to himself between his legs for a left circle wrister that put the Caps ahead 3-2 at 12:52/3. Just over a minute later Ovechkin put in a rebound for an insurance power play goal at 14:08/3. The game was tied 1-1 after the 1st-Per and 2-2 at second intermission. Viktor Kozlov (#11) and Mike Green (#14) had the other Caps goals. Villie Leino (1st NHL goal in his first NHL game) and Johan Franzen (#22, a PPG) scored for Detroit. The defeat extended the Wings losing streak to five games (0-4-1). It was only the second time in 12 DC visits that Detroit was defeated by Washington (9-2-1t) and only the second time in 11 career starts Caps goalie Jose Theodore had beaten the Wings. Ty Conklin was in net for Detroit.

    POW Award

    The first Lions QBack to play in the NFL Pro Bowl since Greg Landry in 1971, Matthew Stafford made the most of his opportunity after being named to the squad as an injury replacement. Stafford flung the ball for 316-yds and two touchdowns for winning Team Irvin (32-28 vs Team Carter) on JAN 25TH in Glendale, AZ and was named the game's offensive MVP. Stafford hooked-up with fellow Detroit Lion Golden Tate on a 60-yd pass that set up an Emmanuel Sanders 10-yd touchdown on the next play late in the 1st-QTR. Stafford also connected with Jimmy Graham on a 6-yd TD in the 2nd-QTR. Stafford became the fourth Lion to earn Pro Bowl MVP honors and the first since 1980. Stafford is our Player- Of-the-Week Award winner for the period of January 19th--25th, 2015. It's Stafford's first POW Award this calendar year and sixth overall.
