Pavel Datsyuk scores filthy game-tying goal

I can say that this goal was even prettier in person.  Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk crossed over Anaheim Ducks defenseman Lucas Sbisa to give himself the extra room to take the puck to the outside.  Then as he was streaking down the wing, fired a perfect shot, short-side high glove to tie the game.  The puck was in and out so quickly that the stadium was certain that it was actually a goal until the referee signaled.  Watching the replay you can see that the shot actually hits the water bottle and breaks the water bottle holder.  Jonas Hiller never stood a chance on the play and the clutch goal late in the third period tied the game and the Red Wings went on to win it in overtime to tie the series 2-2.
