Detroit seal Game 7 win to oust the Ducks from playoffs.
Captain Henrik Zetterberg and Jimmy Howard were the heroes for the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night, as their 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks sealed their progress to the Conference semi-finals.
The Red Wings advance after winning the series 4-3, with Zetterberg scoring the opening goal as well as assisting on another, while Howard made 31 saves to help secure the win in California.
The seventh-seeded Detroit needed at least a point in the final game of the regular season to even qualify for the playoffs, but just a fortnight on they will prepare for a Western Conference semi-finals clash with the Chicago Blackhawks.
Despite winning just their third Game 7 on the road in the history of the franchise, the Red Wings continue their recent success by making the second round for the sixth time in seven seasons.
However, they will face a real battle to overcome the top seeded Blackhawks if they are to progress to the Conference finals.
