DETROIT - Niklas Kronwall scored the winning goal 26 seconds into overtime to lift the Detroit Red Wings over the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on Friday night.

Kronwall was stripped in front of his net 10 seconds into the extra period, but Henrik Zetterberg and Dylan Larkin were able to tie up the play without allowing a shot. The puck eventually bounced loose, and Larkin led a two-on-one rush the other way, with Kronwall one-timing a pass past Cam Talbot for his first goal of the season.

Larkin, Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit, while Iiro Pakarinen scored twice for the Oilers and Andrej Sekera added another.

Detroit has now gone six games without losing in regulation.
