Kings Vs. Red Wings Score: Darren Helm Scores Lone Goal To Give Red Wings 1-0 Lead

Through the three games between these two teams this season, there has been a minimum of five combined goals in each of the games. Through one period tonight, there has only been one goal and that has come off the stick of Darren Helm. Helm scored at the six minute mark of the first period to give the Red Wings a 1-0 lead after twenty minutes. His goal was assisted by Justin Abdelkader and Kris Draper. 

The Red Wings are controlling the offense in the first period. Along with the 1-0 lead on the scoreboard, they are outshooting the Kings 11-3 through the first period. Nicklas Lidstrom leads the Red Wings with three shots in the period while three other players has two shots on goal. For the Kings, only three players have registered a shot. The Red Wings have a total of 21 shots toward the net, which is a combined total of the shots on goal, blocked shots, and missed shots, while the Kings only have eight shots toward the net. 

Jimmy Howard has made all three saves that has come his way while Jonathan Quick has ten saves on eleven shots tonight. If previous matchups this season have shown anything though, its that there should be more offense in this game tonight.
