- After following 2-0, the Detroit Redwings stormed back for a 3-2 OT over the San Jose Sharks in Northern California on Wednesday night. The win knotted the series up at 2 games a piece. The comeback was made possible largely on the heals of FI Mathieu Schneider who assisted on Detroit's first goal, a powerplay tally, and then scored the game winning goal with the extra man 16:04 into the OT frame. After going scoreless in his last 4 games, Schneider made it back to the boxscore with his first multiple point night of the postseason since Game 1 against Calgary in the first round. In 10 games, Schneider has 2 goals and 4 assists for 6 points. 4 of those points have come with the man advantage. The game winner was his first in the playoffs since April 10, 2004, Detroit's second game of their first round matchup with the Predators, snapping a 25-game streak without scoring the deciding goal.
