The Red Wings, who scored three times with the man advantage, got a 5-on-3 chance later in the period when the Flames were called for tripping and slashing penalties. Datsyuk cashed in the opportunity, knocking in his sixth goal with 7:21 left.

After going 13 straight games without a goal, Datsyuk has scored three times in the last three contests.
