#1
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork. Discount Shoes Black Friday .com) - Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader each posted a goal and an assist to lead the Detroit Red Wings in a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday. Riley Sheahan had the other goal and Petr Mrazek stopped 28 shots for the Red Wings, who have won three of their last four. Its nice to get a goal, but its nice to get a win, said Zetterberg. We played the way we wanted to and won the last two games. Mikael Backlund had a goal and an assist and Mason Raymond notched the other marker for the Flames, who have lost their last two. Starting goaltender Karri Ramo left halfway through the second period after a collision with his own player when he came out to play the puck. He took a knee to the head and was escorted into the locker room after stopping 12-of-13 shots. Jonas Hiller allowed two goals on nine shots in relief. After Raymond beat Mrazek on a wraparound 2:27 into the game, Detroit tied the game at 7:58 of the first as Sheahan skated down the right wing and cut behind the defender before beating Ramo with a quick shot high to the short side. The only goal of the second period went to the Red Wings, as Zetterberg was able to chip a bouncing puck in from the left side off a deflected pass at 17:28 for his 10th of the season. It was a 3-1 game just 2:03 into the third as the Red Wings scored on a power play after Gustav Nyquist sent a pass from the left circle to the low right side for Abdelkader, whose first shot went off the left post, but he buried his second chance. The Flames made it a one-goal game three minutes later on a 2-on-2 rush while shorthanded that saw Paul Byron skate in down the left wing and fling a pass to the slot where Backlund backhanded the puck into the net. Calgary nearly tied the score with 1:20 left after Byron snapped the puck in from down low, but play had been whistled dead moments before as Mrazek had his mask knocked off. Thats a tough break right there to have that happen at that moment of the game, said Calgary defenseman Mark Giordano about the play. Its the right call to make, but unfortunately it probably cost us a goal. Mrazek made a couple more saves down the stretch to help his team grab the win.

The defending champion Czechs clinched an unassailable 3-0 lead over Japan after Radek Stepanek and Lukas Rosol comfortably beat Tatsuma Ito and Yasutaka Uchiyama 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in the doubles. Thats the only quarterfinal that has gone according to script so far, as Switzerland and France both find themselves down 2-1 going into the reverse singles on Sunday. Many expected Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka to have wrapped up Switzerlands best-of-five series against Kazakhstan by now as well, but the former Olympic doubles champions were beaten 6-4, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (6) by Andrey Golubev and Aleksandr Nedovyesov. That came after Wawrinka lost his singles match to Golubev on Saturday, meaning theres no more room for mistakes for the heavily favoured Swiss. "Im actually very excited for tomorrow," Federer said. "We are still the favourites for each singles match tomorrow, but with no more margin for error and were aware of that." Germany entered its quarterfinal without its top three players, but Tobias Kamke and Peter Gojowczyk surprisingly won their opening singles matches to give the vvisitors a 2-0 lead on Friday against France.

It was a great performance from Julien and Mika. Its very hard to play when youre 2-0 down because you have no room for error," France captain Arnaud Clement said. "They deserve it because they really pushed themselves." In Sundays matches, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is scheduled to play Kamke, and Benneteau faces Gojowczyk. Andy Murray was the busiest player of the day as he first had to complete a 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 victory over Italys Andreas Seppi in their delayed singles match, before returning to the court to help Britain take a 2-1 lead with a win in the doubles. Murray and Colin Fleming beat Fabio Fognini and Simone Bolelli 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 to boost Britains bid to reach the semifinals for the first time since 1981. Rain delays had interrupted play in Naples on Friday and Murrays match was suspended because of darkness in the second set. Murray can secure the victory when he plays Fognini on Sunday. "It should be a tough match," Murray said. "Fabio has played very well this year so itll be a great challenge. But I hope I can have a good match and get us to the semis." ' ' '
