The Detroit Red Wings were not messing around in two periods of play on Friday night. They lead the Minnesota Wild by a lopsided 5-0 at the second intermission.
Darren Helm scored around the seven minute mark of the second period. Things quieted down a little after that, and it looked like Wild goalie Josh Harding settled down a little.
Then, Valtteri Filppula scored his second goal of the game and 21st of the season at the 16:35 mark. Slightly more than a minute later, Ian White walked added an unassisted tally as Detroit took a seemingly insurmountable lead into the locker room.
The Red Wings barraged Harding with 12 shots in the second period. They have a 25-10 edge over the Wild in that department.
