It may have taken the Detroit Red Wings every last second of the 1st period to get on the board on Tuesday night against the New York Islanders, but it’s better to score late than not at all and that’s exactly what Henrik Zetterberg did.

Watch as the Red Wings captain puts the puck in the net with 0.1 remaining in the opening period of play to tie the game up 1-1.
