Throughout the NHL season, there are moments that stand out as being truly unique. Whether that’s a spectacular performance, a thrilling comeback, an unforgettable finish, or all of the above, it only takes a few split seconds to create memories that last a lifetime.

April 20, 2011
Red Wings 6, Coyotes 3

In an instant, it was over.

Tomas Holmstrom scored 3:47 into the first period, Patrick Eaves tied the game at two with less than a minute left in the opening frame. And after Danny Cleary and Todd Bertuzzi scored two minutes apart in the second period, the Red Wings had all but sealed Game 4 and a sweep of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Even without Henrik Zetterberg, the Wings were able to use a balanced attack and solid goaltending from Jimmy Howard to dismantle Phoenix, whose future was uncertain in Arizona as the series progressed.

1st – Danny Cleary
2nd – Shane Doan
3rd – Valtteri Filppula

    Reblogged this on Matthew Parij and commented:
    Big whoop about Hockey, or any other sport for that matter; that’s all I have to say.
    This particular post is another reminder that I am writing a book about an awful sports family whose sons are into icky, yucky Basketball and icky, yucky Hockey; the parents are strict, the parents drive a minivan that they hold onto for a while, the parents send each of their 3 children to a private school (a Catholic school, to be exact); and the daughter also finds herself playing icky, yucky Basketball while in college.
    In a nutshell, I say to the couple and each of their 3 children big whoop about sports.
    I try to force this couple’s children to ruminate on what it was like to live in the 1970’s and 1980’s, force this couple’s children to eat a plate of grated cheese and a plate of croutons, rub my interest in fans into this family no matter how much they disagree with me and think that I’m crazy, rub my interest in amateur/ham radio and commercial radio and television into this family; badmouth this family’s minivan and rub my interest in Full-Size body on frame American passenger cars, Suburbans, and European cars such as Volkswagens/Audis, Mercedes-Benzs, Renaults, Citroens; and Peugeots; regardless of how little this family cares about vehicles.
