|Hossa Gives Blackhawks OT Win Over Red Wings
|DETROIT (AP) -- Marian Hossa scored on a power play 51 seconds into overtime, lifting the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night.
Henrik Zetterberg was called for hooking Patrick Kane with 3.7 seconds left, putting Chicago on the power play to begin the extra session. The Blackhawks took advantage on Hossa's shot from the left circle -- his first goal against Detroit as an ex-Red Wing -- off a pass from Kane.
The defending Stanley Cup champions improved their precarious playoff positioning with their third win in four games. They began the night in eighth place, barely ahead of idle Calgary and Dallas and one point behind Anaheim, which hosted Colorado late Monday.
