DETROIT (AP) -Marian Hossa scored with 55 seconds left to lift Detroit to a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday, snapping the Red Wings' three-game losing streak.

Detroit also got a goal and an assist from Pavel Datsyuk, a goal from Jiri Hudler and a pair of assists from Tomas Holmstrom. Chris Osgood made 20 saves.

Cal Clutterbuck had a goal and an assist and Marian Gaborik also scored for the Wild, who are 10th in the Western Conference and saw their playoff chances take a major hit. Niklas Backstrom made 41 saves for Minnesota.

Gaborik tied it with 2:03 left in the second period when he scored his 10th goal from the slot during a goal-mouth scramble, and Hossa scored his 38th - the eventual game-winner - by beating Backstrom from the right circle after taking a pass from Holmstrom.

Fleischmann opened the scoring with an unassisted goal in the first period and assisted on Alexander Semin's tally during the Capitals' three-goal barrage in the third.

Keith Aucoin, Michael Nylander, Eric Fehr and Brooks Laich also scored for the Capitals, who lead the New Jersey Devils by two points in the battle for the East's No. 2 seed. Each team has three games remaining.
