Teemu Pushes Ducks Past Detroit 3-1 In Opener

Posted By Sam Greenberg On May 1, 2013 @ 5:17 AM In NHL | No Comments

Teemu Selanne scored the tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period, Jonas Hiller made 21 saves, and the Anaheim Ducks returned to the postseason with a 3-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Nick Bonino also scored a power-play goal, and Francois Beauchemin added an empty-netter for the second-seeded Ducks. They hung on in the final minutes of the opener in just their second playoff series in four years.

The 42-year-old Selanne came up with yet another huge goal for the Pacific Division champions, putting a perfectly placed one-timer over Jimmy Howard’s shoulder while gliding backward.

Howard stopped 24 shots and Daniel Cleary scored on a power play for the Red Wings in their 22nd consecutive postseason appearance.
