The Detroit Red Wings are still tied through two periods, but they have been able to answer a pair of second period goals by the Philadelphia Flyers rather quickly. Brayden Schenn and Maxime Talbot each had second period goals for the Flyers, but Detroit was able to immediately answer each time.
Schenn's goal, his second of the game, came 5:22 into the period, but Detroit answered with a goal from Pavel Datsyuk less than three minutes later. Talbot scored with under four minutes left, but the Red Wings needed only two more minutes to equalize once again. Henrik Zetterberg netted his 11th goal of the season with less than two minutes to go in the period. Zetterberg now has a goal and an assist in this game.
