DETROIT, April 24 (UPI) -- Johan Franzen scored two of Detroit's four unanswered goals Thursday, giving the Red Wings a 4-3 win over Colorado to open their conference semifinal series.
Although Osgood gave up three goals -- after allowing just one over the final two games against the Predators -- he saved Thursday's contest with a brilliant save against David Jones with less than two minutes remaining.
Paul Stastny gave Colorado the lead 8:53 into the game, after which Detroit built a 4-1 advantage.
Franzen tallied again on the power play 73 seconds into the second.
Game 2 will be in Detroit Saturday.
