GAME SEVEN – THE GAME OF LIFE
May 6, 2011
Red Wings 4, Sharks 3
Down three games to none in the series, the Red Wings were quick out of the gate in Game 4, jumping out to a 3-1 lead on two goals from Nicklas Lidstrom and one from Todd Bertuzzi.
The Sharks rallied to tie the score on a second period goal by Dan Boyle and a third period tally by Dany Heatley. It was Darren Helm who broke the draw and sent the Wings back to California, scoring from the left circle off the pass from Patrick Eaves.
