Detroit Red Wings Pummel Coyotes In 2nd Period To Take 3-1 Lead

Boy, that was not what the Phoenix Coyotes needed. After going up on a very early goal, the defense allowed the hometown Red Wings to find the back of the net three times.

Pavel Datsyuk scored at the 7:38 mark of the second period on the wrap-around shots. That was followed at the 12:02 point with a snap shot by Johan Franzen and then again at 18:16 by Brian Rafalski’s slap shot.

The Coyotes have come back many times this season and are going to need a big third period to avoid going down 0-1 in the series.
