The Malik Report

The Detroit Red Wings had a glorious opportunity to put the game away, getting a five-minute power play when leading by a goal late in the second period.
But, they couldn't generate much pressure, let alone score. Then, their man-advantage was cut short by 49 seconds due to their own penalty. Then, Ryan Getzlaf scored a power-play goal with 32 seconds remaining in the second period to tie it for the Anaheim Ducks.
Detroit still had chances to win in the third period. But, after Nick Bonino scored at 1:54 of overtime to give Anaheim a 3-2 victory in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinal playoff series at the Honda Center, the Red Wings looked back at that botched power play as the turning point of the game.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
