Their only goal was a pretty fortunate bounce for them. Brunner takes the shot, stopped in Seabs' skates (Crawford had already reacted to it), he shoots again gets deflected off Leddy's stick, Crawford makes the stop and he puts in the rebound.

Tonight was one of those games where nobody played exceptional (Saad and Sharp were close), but we just played our system and game so well we dominated. The forecheck, the cycle, the puck pressure were all outstanding tonight. People keep talking about how horrible Detroit's D played, but the reality is that they were forced into many of those turn overs because of our dogged forecheck.

Not that I expect any acknowledgement from the haters, but it was also nice to have Bolland back out there in his playoff form. He really does bring it to a whole other level in the playoffs.
