Ann Arbor, MI (SportsNetwork.com) – The Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple
Leafs renewed their Original Six rivalry outside on the snow-covered ice in
front of a record crowd at Michigan Stadium in the sixth Winter Classic. The
game was decided in a shootout, reminiscent of the 2008 Winter Classic that
ended with a 2-1 shootout win for Pittsburgh over Buffalo. After both teams
scored once, Tyler Bozak lit the lamp as Toronto’s third and final
shooter to allow the Maple Leafs to take a 3-2 decision over the Red Wings.
Bozak skated through the middle and fired a low shot past the stick side of
Jimmy Howard for the win. James van Riemsdyk and Bozak supplied
Toronto’s goals, while Jonathan Bernier turned aside 41-of-43 shots to
allow the Leafs to jump over Detroit in the Atlantic Division standings and
win their third straight. Daniel Alfredsson and Justin Abdelkader
contributed Detroit’s two goals and Brenden Smith had two assists in Detroit’s
second straight loss. Howard allowed two goals on 26 shots.
