It was another great game last Saturday, March 14th when the Red Wings repeated their victory 5-2 over St. Louis Blues. It was the 2nd time, 11 days to be exact, that the Wings gently reminded the Blues and other teams at their quick-strike offense, strong defense and solid goaltending. Pavel Datsyuk, the king of backchecking and pucks stealing, scored twice in the 2nd period. The Wings' three consecutive shots in a 46-second at the beginning of the 2nd that took the air out of the Blues and put the game away. The Wings have won five straight in St. Louis.
The Red Wings wiped out a one-goal deficit and rallied to a 5-2 win over the Blues. In previous Wings v. Blues games, my husband usually had friendly wagers with someone, "Jack", who was a former co-worker, for a beer after the 1st period. For almost two years, Jack has been buying beer as the Wings always scored first and held on to the leads. This time, Jack wanted to change the wager to the 2nd period. Bad move for Jack as the Blues led 1-0 after the 1st but the Wings striked back with 4 goals in the 2nd. Final score was 5-2 Wings. Maybe next time Jack would learn his lesson and just buy the beer without betting :)
