Go to the net, young man. Go to the net.

Looking at times like an offensive juggernaut, firing 49 shots at Jonas Hiller and driving the net more in each period and the overtime Monday than they did all night Saturday, the Red Wings beat the Ducks 3-2 to even the series at 2, going back to Anaheim.

Here's your big push, pal!

They had the same number of shots in the first 17 minutes Monday as they did in the first 31 Saturday.

Henrik Zetterberg finished with eight shots. Todd Bertuzzi, Patrick Eaves, Johan Franzen, Kyle Quincey and Mikael Samuelsson all had four.

Only Gustav Nyquist and Valtteri Filppula were shotless, and Nyquist assisted on the winner in overtime.

This was desire channeled to will again for the Wings, just like the last four games of the regular season.

They all over the Ducks at times; absolute hell to pay.

It was what they had all talked about. It was what their coach had said, repeatedly.

"I didn't think we were hard on Hiller, at all," Mike Babcock said Sunday, of the game Saturday. "We were too passive to the net instead of grabbing and shooting, and I didn't think we were on the inside near enough. I really didn't."

And he had that "bird of prey" look on his face — you know, that scowl of Babcock's that creases everything on his face below that helmet of hair, which expresses both disbelief and the need for urgency.

The other coach noticed the difference Monday.
