Go Wings

Stars lead Red Wings into second round

There's a confidence in knowing you've been there, done that.

For playoff luminaries such as Nicklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk, Game 7 is the time to shine. And did they ever Tuesday night.

With surgical precision, the two veteran stars ripped apart the Coyotes with two goals apiece. Henrik Zetterberg also chipped in three assists as the Red Wings clobbered the home team 6-1 to take the first-round series.

Detroit looked very much like the veteran team with Cup rings galore, Phoenix like the nervous debutante.

"Our top guys came to play tonight," said Wings goalie Jimmy Howard. "And they're some of the best in the league."

With the whole hockey world waiting intently to see how Alex Ovechkin and his star-studded Washington Capitals will react in their Game 7 against Montreal on Wednesday night, if they were watching Tuesday, they saw how it's done. Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Lidstrom raised their games, and the rest of the group followed.
