Wings 3, Coyotes 2 In OT

On his first shift of the game, just 78 seconds after the puck was dropped, Filppula scored--his 9th of the season. He also got an assist on the game-winner. He was named one of the stars of the game--got the first star from Yahoo sports. He was +2 on the night--+14 (?) for the season. I think Baby Boy is on a roll! It is good that he is FINALLY getting into a groove--not that he played TERRIBLY so far this year--hopefully it will continue into the playoffs. Good show tonight. Bring on the Flames!

--Detroit Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula puts a goal past Phoenix Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov in the first period of their game at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit on Tuesday, March 10, 2009. The Red Wings won 3-2 in overtime. (Daniel Mears / The Detroit News)--

Boston lost tonight, so they are in second place in the league. San Jose won, so they are tied at the top of the league with Detroit. It will be interesting to see what the standings are like at the end of the season. I don't expect the Wings to win the President's this year--and that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

'Canes looked good the other night when they beat the Rangers. When it comes to the playoffs, ANYONE can win, right?
