Detroit, MI (Sports Network) – Pavel Datsyuk scored with 43 seconds left in overtime as Detroit snapped a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion with a 2-1 victory over Edmonton.

Nicklas Lidstrom tallied with 24.8 seconds left in regulation to force the extra period as the Red Wings snapped their longest skid of the season. Detroit, which leads the Central Division by a comfortable margin over idle Chicago, hadn’t won since February 28 at Los Angeles.

Jimmy Howard gave up an early goal, but was stellar the rest of the way with 26 saves in all.
