Highlights – 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Game 7 – Detroit Red Wings vs Anaheim Ducks

Game Seven seemed to be a continuation of Game Six for the Detroit Red Wings, as their top players once again took over the game. Even though Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk were spilt up for the first time in the series, it did not faze the Red Wings.

The Anaheim Ducks were pressuring the Red Wings on the power play when Justin Abdelkader decided to take the game in his own hands and tipped a pass, took it down on a breakaway, and scored a shorthanded goal. Henrik Zetterberg produced two points of his own and Valtteri Filppula notched the series clinching goal.

In net, Jimmy Howard came up big stops at the right moments to keep the Wings in the lead.

Niklas Kronwall made his presence felt as once again, with a big hit on Bobby Ryan. I could watch this all day long and am looking forward to seeing some Blackhawks feel the wrath of the Kronwall.

After the game, TSN caught up with Henrik Zetterberg and asked him a few questions.
