Detroit was able to capitalize early in the third period. Whether it was a wake-up call or not. The Detroit Red Wings were able to continue doing their thing on the power play. They executed off the draw, and it led to a goal.
Shayne Gostisbehere scrambled to get in position, Moritz Seider got the puck off the draw and started to crash, drawing defenders, and Gostisbehere was able to get open. He fired one in from the point with a rocket off his stick to bring Detroit within one.
Soon after that, Detroit got another chance on the power play and was able to come all the way back to tie things up. It was Dylan Larkin who made the most of his chances after a high-sticking penalty. He caught the puck down low by the goal line and was able to sneak one past Daccord with a “top cheddar” shot.
The Red Wings battled and fought back, something that they have not done in recent memory. They showed fight and were able to finish off, power play or not, to bring themselves back into this game.
As if that was not enough to fire fans up, the Red Wings were able to reclaim the lead with ANOTHER power play goal. They had another chance on the power play and were able to get set up in the offensive zone. They moved the puck around, and it was Larkin down low who was able to feed DeBrincat.
He fired it to DeBrincat, who was able to catch Daccord on the move; sliding through the crease, he beat him with a beautiful shot to the open part of the net. DeBrincat’s ninth goal of the season gave Detroit the 4-3 lead.
Seattle did not quit, either. They were able to pick up a late power play goal after Larkin was penalized while killing off a Daniel Sprong penalty. McCann was able to let a wrist shot rip from near the top of the circle, and it got through, finding the back of the net to tie things up at four apiece.
