Recap: Edmonton vs. Detroit

Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Pavel Datsyuk's goal with 1:21 left in overtime gave the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

In the extra session, Niklas Kronwall hit Datsyuk with a short pass in the neutral zone and he went flying into the Edmonton zone. Skating up the middle, Datsyuk danced around a defender, went back to the outside and snapped a shot in for his first goal in 12 games.

"I don't think that's the recipe for success, but I think our guys really dug in and got competitive," said Detroit head coach Mike Babcock.

Kronwall had a goal as did Valtteri Filppula while Jimmy Howard allowed two goals on 32 shots for the Red Wings, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist while Sam Gagner also scored for the Oilers, who had a two-game winning streak stopped. Devan Dubnyk gave up all three goals on 28 shots.

Edmonton scored the only goal of the first period when Hall skated through the middle and snapped a shot that beat Howard 3:34 into the game.

It was a 2-0 game with 3:42 to play in the second period as Gagner's shot off a rebound down low found the back of the net for his 11th of the season.

Detroit got one back at the 4:27 mark of the third period when Filppula threw a backhand on net from the slot that went in for his sixth of the season.

Skating on the power play, Detroit caught a break to tie the game as Kronwall blasted a shot on net that was stopped, but Edmonton's Jeff Petry shot it into his own net while trying to clear it away with 5:53 to play in regulation.

"It was coming back from the net and my first reaction was to put my stick on the ice", said Petry. "As I was putting it down it had forward momentum and that was that."
