The win ties the best-of-seven series and gives Detroit home-ice advantage as the next two contests will be played in the Motor City with Game 3 set for Sunday at noon (et).

Ian White, Cory Emmerton and Johan Franzen all lit the lamp for the Red Wings, who are in the playoffs for the 21st straight season.
