Detroit beat San Jose to tie NHL playoffs series at 1-1

Detroit beat San Jose to tie NHL playoffs series at 1-1

Pavel Datsyuk scored off a rebound with 1:24 left to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 comeback victory over the San Jose Sharks, evening the Western Conference semifinal at a game apiece on Saturday.
Joe Thornton had a goal and an assist in the first 4:17, and San Jose held onto the two-goal lead until Henrik Zetterberg scored late in the second period.
The Sharks then made a rare mistake early in the third period with a Detroit-like giveaway. Daniel Cleary made them pay for it with a short-handed goal that made 2-all.
San Jose had two power plays midway through the final period, but took only one shot on the first opportunity and three on the second.
Detroit's Dominik Hasek made 17 saves, and Evgeni Nabokov stopped 19 shots.
Devils 3, Senators 2, 2OT
At East Rutherford, New Jersey, Jamie Langenbrunner scored on a breakaway 1:55 into the second overtime to give New Jersey a home split of the first two games in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Langenbrunner picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone, fought off a hook from trailing defenseman Joe Corvo and shoved the puck past sprawled goalie Ray Emery. The puck slipped between Emery's pads as Corvo crashed into the net, knocking it off its moorings as Langenbrunner celebrated.
New Jersey seemed set to win it in regulation, after first-period goals by Brian Gionta and Sergei Brylin, but Dany Heatley tied it for Ottawa with 26.4 seconds left in the third.
Martin Brodeur, who gave up all of Ottawa's five goals in the opener, kept the Devils in this one. He ended up with 43 saves to earn his 94th playoffs victory, second only to Patrick Roy (151).
Daniel Alfredsson started Ottawa's comeback with a power-play goal 4:23 into the second period.
