Green Islanders Jerseys . "I pretty much told myself it cant get any worse," Crawford said. It did -- for Detroit. The Blackhawks picked up their crestfallen goalie by scoring three times in the first half of the third period to beat the Red Wings 4-3 on Monday night and force a Game 7 in the second-round playoff series between longtime rivals. "Weve got that momentum," Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. "We want to keep it." The Blackhawks got it when Bryan Bickell netted the go-ahead score early in the third, helping the NHLs top-seeded team earn a shot to advance to the Western Conference finals after Detroit once led 3-1 in the series. The Red Wings also began the third period of Game 6 with one-goal lead. They just couldnt hold on. Michal Handzus tied it in the opening minute of the final period. Bickell scored about 5 minutes later. Michael Froliks backhander on a penalty shot at the 9:43 mark put the Blackhawks ahead 4-2 and silenced the once-raucous crowd. Chicago needed that cushion because Damien Brunner scored with 52 seconds left to pull Detroit within one. The seventh-seeded Red Wings pulled their goaltender, but they were unable to score with the extra skater. Now the series between Original Six teams shifts to Chicago for Game 7 on Wednesday night. "If I wouldve told Detroit and Michigan we would play in Chicago in Game 7, I think everybody would be excited about that," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "I love Game 7s. "Weve got a chance to push them out of the playoffs. It should be a lot of fun." Detroit advanced to the second round after winning Game 6 at home and Game 7 on the road against second-seeded Anaheim. "I think its nice that weve been through it this year in the first series and I think that helped our team," Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "It will be easier for us to come in there and play loose and just focus on what were going to do." Frolik became first player in league history to score two goals on penalty shots in the playoffs. He also did it two years ago against Vancouver. "I was kind of surprised that I was the first one in history," he said. "Its a little bit special." Crawford made 35 saves and Jimmy Howard stopped 24 shots for the Red Wings. The Blackhawks sent the series back to Detroit with a 4-1 victory in Game 5 on Saturday night, and then jumped in front on Marian Hossas goal in the first. But Patrick Eaves tied the game later in the period and Joakim Andersson put the Red Wings up 2-1 with a long wrister 10:11 into the second period. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville made the first tactical move by starting Toews and taking him off the ice soon after the puck dropped to get him away from Zetterberg. When the Blackhawks went ahead 1-0 on a power play, both captains were on the ice. Toews won the first faceoff against Zetterberg after the penalty was called, and ended up with an assist on Hossas goalmouth scramble 3:53 into the game. Eaves, who revived his career during the lockout-delayed season after having a concussion, scored for the first time this post-season off a rebound 18:51 into the first. The Red Wings went ahead for the first time when Anderson had the puck, which was on edge above the left circle, and flicked a wrist shot that Crawford couldnt handle. "It was a knuckle-puck," Andersson said. "Its hard for the goalie to see those sometimes." Chicago got to the front of the net in the third period and it paid off. Handzus was basically by himself when he scored 51 seconds into the third against a helpless Howard. Bickell wouldnt let Detroit defenceman Brendan Smith move him away from Howard before he scored the winning goal, leading to Howard taking Smiths stick and throwing it into the corner. Frolik got a penalty try when he had a breakaway after blocking Carlo Colaiacovos shot and was hacked by him from behind. He took advantage by scoring easily on Howards glove side. "Ive got nothing to say about that," Howard said when asked about the call that gave Chicago a penalty shot. Howard had a lot to say did during the game about it, screaming at an official while the Blackhawks celebrated their comeback that was made possible by supporting players. "Theres not a lot of room out there for top guys," Quenneville said. "We dont care who scores. Were all about being a team and contributing any way you can." NOTES: Quenneville earned his 79th playoff win to break a tie with Babcock for the most by an active coach and move past Pat Burns and into 8th place on the leagues all-time list. ... The Blackhawks are 5-0 when they score on a power play this post-season and Detroit is 2-6 when it allows a power-play goal. ... Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Brandon Inge attended the game after playing against his former team, the Tigers, at nearby Comerica Park and was wearing a Jordin Tootoo Red Wings jersey. Brock Nelson Jersey . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. Bob Nystrom Jersey . The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. http://www.authenticislandersshopnhl.com/thomas-greiss-jersey/ . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side.Leeds injury woes, great wins for Hull FC, Salford and Widnes plus Lizzie Jones new fund make this weeks Set of Six. Leeds injury problemsJust two games into the new season and Leeds are in deep trouble with their strength in depth being sorely tested. After being dismantled by Widnes, they now have to prepare for their World Club Challenge battle against North Queensland shorn of their front-line players. Tom Briscoe, Ashton Golding and Carl Ablett are all in doubt for Sundays clash, live on Sky Sports 2, as they join Danny McGuire, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Stevie Ward and Beau Falloon on the injury list.Jamie Jones is close but it would be silly to rush him back, said Leeds coach Brian McDermott.We will have a look at Beau Falloon but he was going to be in a boot for another 10 days at least so if we do play him it would be a risk. And Stevie Ward is nowhere near.World Club WoesWill it be 3-0 to the NRL teams for the second year in succession? Apart from Leeds and their walking wounded, St Helens were torn apart by Salford ahead of Fridays clash with Sydney Roosters. Saints coach Keiron Cunningham is expecting a response and said that Fridays loss to the Red Devils was not acceptable:Weve got to regroup and get back to the drawing board, he said. Well respond next week. The disappointing thing as coach is I thought I had got some consistency into the place.Rugby league is about energy battles and, if you lose the energy battle, you dig yourself into a hole. You can smell an air of complacency about the place just before the game. I spoke to my staff about it, I was a little bit worried about it but, once theyre ready to cross the line, its a little late.Wigan are the other Super League team and they face Brisbane on Saturday; they may be winning at the moment but coach Shaun Wane knows they need to improve.He said: Its a decent start for us but we understand we need to improve for next week. We played ugly and won.Some of our skill was poor. They controlled the ball and they were allowed to do that, which is disappointing. We had a spell when our completions were about 50 per cent which is not us.Hull FCs flying start Highlights from the match between Catalans Dragons and Hull FC Hull FC have certainly started their 2016 campaign with a bang as they made it two wins from two with an impressive 38-10 win over Catalans Dragons in Perpignan. Some of our Sky Sports pundits have been bigging them up this season and they certainly look to be delivering. As for Catalans, well there is big pressure on them in the south of France. Word from inside the camp is that they had a fractured pre-season with players arriving in dribs and drabs and they have been unable to get some real cohesion going. They will need to get that sorted quickly or it is going to be a long and disappointing season.Salford and Widnes shine All the action from the Super League clash between Salford and St Helens The one year Phil Clarke doesnt tip them for glory, Salford actually look like a useful side! They took Saints to the cleaners on Thursday night much to the delight of owner Dr Marwan Koukash: Ive been waiting three years for a performance like that. I am absolutely delighted. We have a very young side - probably the youngest in Super League and we will only get better over time.Widnes coach Denis Betts was also delighted as he watched his side romp to a 56-12 win over defending Champions Leeds. Islanders Jerseys For Sale. Its hard not to be so pleased and happy with the performance, said Betts. Highlights of Widnes win over Leeds in the Super League Were two games in so we dont want to get carried away but we came into the game with real confidence of winning and to restrict Leeds to 12 points is a real bonus.Wood defends Bennett appointmentNew England coach Wayne Bennett arrives in England this week as his appointment comes under fire from the likes of St Helens coach Cunningham and Castleford head coach Daryl Powell, who both believe that the job should have been awarded to Leeds boss Brian McDermott.Bennett is here with the Brisbane Broncos who take on Wigan at the DW Stadium on Saturday night in the 2016 World Club series and he isnt likely to step foot in the country again until the Four Nations.  However, Rugby Football League chief executive Nigel Wood firmly believes the RFL made the correct appointment, Wayne Bennetts appointment has been defended by the RFL We concluded that Englands chances of success would be enhanced if we asked Wayne to take the role, he said.Wayne is the pre-eminent coach of the modern, possibly any, era. He has a proven track record at club and representative level and is a sincere internationalist.The current group of players is an exciting proposition and they deserve the best in class coaching support to maximise the opportunity to succeed on behalf of the country.We do, however, recognise that the coaching support group should ideally be populated by coaches from the Super League and this is what we will be seeking to achieve with the future appointments. Ultimately it is of course Waynes call as you would expect.Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund launched Danny Jones widow, Lizzie Jones, has launched a fund to raise money towards providing clubs at all levels of the game with a defibrillator at matches Danny Jones widow, Lizzie, has launched a fund to raise money towards providing clubs at all levels of the game with a defibrillator at matches.Danny was a Keighley Cougars and Wales international half-back who collapsed and died from an undiagnosed heart condition while playing against London Skolars in May 2015.Lizzie successfully campaigned for cardiac screening to become mandatory at every Kingstone Press Championship and League 1 club, as it already is in the Super League.She has now joined forces with the RFL Benevolent Fund to raise money to create a fund that will provide assistance to hundreds of community clubs and junior teams across the country to purchase a defibrillator.The campaign has set a fund-raising target of £50,000: to make a donation please visit www.rflbenevolentfund.co.ukGot a view on how the World Club Challenge will go?
