Alfredsson scores in final second of OT to lift Red Wings to wild 5-4 win over Penguins

DETROIT - Daniel Alfredsson scored his second goal of the game with 1 second left in overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.

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.

Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and Todd Bertuzzi also scored for Detroit.

Evgeni Malkin had two goals and Lee Stempniak had one for Pittsburgh

Fleury made 25 saves. Detroit's Jimmy Howard stopped 39 shots.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
