Red Wings vs. Blue Jackets 3 Stars:

  • 1st Star:  Chris Osgood:  He wasn’t as stellar as he was last night but he once again showed why he has won so many playoff games.  And he also managed to shutout the Jackets.
  • 2nd Star: Detroit’s Power Play:  3 of the 4 goals tonight came on the power play and they showed why you can’t get penalties against the regular season’s #1 power play.
  • 3rd Star:  Pavel Datsyuk:  He doesn’t just score, he also hits and he played as physical a game as I’ve seen him play all year long.
