Hossa scored two goals and Osgood made an amazing save
By Shannon Paul
It was an exciting game that included two goals from Marian Hossa and one from Kirk Maltby — his first of this season.
Saturday night’s game against the New Jersey Devils also helped prove Chris Osgood’s place among great goalies in the league.
Osgood’s remarkable stick save marked the 369th win of his career, moving him into a tie position with Tom Barrasso for 14th place on the NHL’s career goalie wins list. It was a close call that was nothing short of amazing.
There was also a very long fight between Darren McCarty and New Jersey’s David Clarkson only two minutes into the first period. Later in the game, play halted when Devils’ Brian Gionta slammed hard into the corner boards as a result from a hit from Red Wings’ Derek Meech. Gionta was down for some time but was able skate himself off the ice.
