|Datsyuk Scores Wings' Winner 3:08 into Overtime
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Pavel Datsyuk banked in a shot from a bad angle off Chicago defenseman Nick Leddy for the winning goal 3:08 into overtime, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Sunday night.
After Corey Crawford made two point-blank saves, Datsyuk got to the loose puck along the goal line to the goalie's left, whiffed once and then snapped a rising shot that hit Leddy and bounded into the open upper portion of the net as Crawford was down in the crease.
That sent Chicago to a season-high fourth straight loss.
Detroit's Dan Cleary scored with 4:45 left in regulation to tie it at 2 after Henrik Zetterberg fired a loose puck into traffic in front. Valtteri Filppula also scored for the Red Wings.
Dave Bolland and Patrick Sharp scored goals 44 seconds apart early in the first period, but the Blackhawks lost for the fifth time in six games following a 9-1-1 run.
