Red Wings top Blackhawks 3-2 in OT, Tie Team Mark
DETROIT (AP) -- Todd Bertuzzi scored his second goal Saturday at 4:21 in overtime, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Detroit has won 14 straight at home to match a franchise record set in 1965.

Chicago's Jonathan Toews forced overtime with 51.7 seconds left in the third period, picking up his 23rd goal of the season.

Pavel Datsyuk assisted on two goals in the first period, but the Red Wings couldn't score the third goal they needed in regulation.

Chicago began the day atop the tightly contested Central Division, leading St. Louis by a point, Detroit by two points and Nashville by five, and has a chance to end it in third place behind the Blues and Red Wings.
