Alfredsson's shot went off Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and appeared to be knocked into the net by Penguins defenceman Rob Scuderi, who scored into his own net earlier in the game. The goal stood after video review.
Detroit was up 2-0, trailed 3-2 and led 4-3 lead with 7:43 left. Craig Adams pulled Pittsburgh back into a tie two minutes later.
