Detroit star scores game winner

All-world Detroit Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk is renowned for his puck-handling wizardry, a skill he showed again Friday night against the Boston Bruins.

With the opening-round playoff game scoreless late in the third period, Datsyuk pushed the puck up between his legs through the neutral zone, weaved his way into the Boston zone before beating goaltender Tuukka Rask at 16:59.

The Red Wings went on to win 1-0 and take home-ice advantage away from the heavily favoured Bruins.
