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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
