Detroit blew a four-goal lead and the Sharks pulled off the incredible for the second time in a week.

Among the 13 NHL games of the day, there was special interest in the Detroit-San Jose game in North America. It would seem that a completely normal meeting between one of the leading teams of the East and an outsider in the league was enlivened by the fact that one of the best Americans in history returned to hockey – Patrick Kane made his debut for the “wings” . today, having recovered from hip surgery. His appearance was eagerly awaited by almost all of American hockey, but the final development of the game seems to have completely overshadowed everything else.

The most anticipated event of the day by Russians:


First Russian with 1500 points! Ovechkin rewrote NHL history

Although all the attention was focused on Patrick in the first half, the teams played the first twenty minutes scoreless, giving television crews and fans the opportunity to literally follow Kane’s every step on the ice. For almost half of the game the puck stubbornly did not enter the goal, although both teams created dangerous moments. But then, as they say, it broke through and the opponents played a segment that has already been called “perhaps the craziest in NHL history.”

At the beginning of the 10th minute of the second half, the Red Wings’ Russian forward Klim Kostin started the game. In the Motor City team, the striker is still remembered more for his brilliant fights than for his effective actions, but today he was able to score the second goal as part of the “wings”, burying the puck from the dime cents.

After that, Detroit was silent for almost four minutes, but soon the fans at Little Caesars Arena heard Eminem’s famous song “Without Me,” which notifies the stands of Red Wings goals, up to three times in just 49 minutes. seconds. the game! Two adjustments by Michael Rasmussen and another accurate shot by Lucas Raymond gave the Wings a comfortable four-goal lead.

What to expect from the union of Detroit and Kane:

Patrick Kane is back in the NHL! Will he help Detroit make the playoffs or wait for a contender?

At this point, in principle, we could have separated, but San José decided to stage another super comeback. A couple of days ago, visiting the Islanders, the Sharks were losing 1:4 with just over 8 minutes left in regulation time, but they not only managed to equalize the score, but also win five seconds before the penalty shootout. . Today they had almost half an hour at their disposal, but they finished it in just five and a half minutes!

Of course, the Sharks should be praised for showing character, but what happened to Detroit anyway? The “Wings” had the opportunity to play the power play immediately after the fourth goal, but not only did they fail to convert it, they also squandered it. Twice! Although before this game, San José had never scored in the minority this season.

It was a matter of technique to recover the remaining deficit, and even before half-time the score was equal again: Nico Sturm’s double to the open laughter of the match commentator allowed the “sharks” to restore balance and start the match. With a clean slate. The teams needed only 10 minutes and 32 seconds to score eight goals, and three minutes and one second to score six goals (from Rasmussen’s first goal to Sturm’s first goal)! The only time in NHL history that six goals were scored faster occurred in 1981, when Quebec and Washington did it in exactly three minutes.

In the third period, Detroit took the lead again, but what’s the point of San Jose regaining any lead? A minute and a half before the siren sounded, Tomas Hertl, with the help of Alexander Barabanov and Mikael Granlund, sent the Sharks’ second straight game into overtime, where the Red Wings’ fate was already decided. Granlund’s first shot in the five extra minutes put an end to this crazy game and thwarted the debut of Patrick Kane, who was left with no points and -1 in 16 and a half minutes on the ice.

“In 32 years on this job, I’ve never seen a single game like this, not a single week like this!” Randy Hahn, the longtime voice of Sharks games, admired after the game. His San José team has achieved two super comebacks in a row; perhaps this will give the team the much-needed boost.
