Brassard's OT goal on breakaway gives Rangers a come-from-behind win over Red Wings

DETROIT - Derick Brassard's breakaway goal in the closing seconds of overtime gave the New York Rangers a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Brassard scored his first of the season with only 12.9 seconds showing on the OT clock.

Benoit Pouliot had a goal and an assist and Mats Zuccarello also scored for New York, which rallied from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits in the final game of its season-opening, nine-game road trip. Cam Talbot stopped 32 shots while filling in for injured regular Henrik Lundqvist.

The Rangers (3-6), who went to overtime for the first time this season, will host Montreal in the opener at renovated Madison Square Garden on Monday.

Drew Miller and Daniel Alfredsson scored for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight. Jimmy Howard made 37 saves.
