Valtteri Filppula scores fantastic goal to seal game against Blackhawks

Detroit Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula has had an up-and-down season this year, but this phenomenal goal showed off just how good he can be.  Henrik Zetterberg dropped the puck off to him at the blue line and rather than Filppula overpass as he has done so often, he pulled the puck to his backhand and drove to the net.  As he was going down he fired a backhand shot between Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford’s legs to give the Red Wings a 4-1 lead.  The Red Wings played fantastically against the Blackhawks in game two and evened the series at 1-1 heading back to Detroit for game three.
