Datsyuk lifts Wings in OT

CHICAGO — Pavel Datsyuk banked in a shot from a bad angle off Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy for the winning goal 3:08 into overtime, and the Red Wings won 3-2 Sunday night.

That sent Chicago to a season-high fourth straight loss.

Detroit's Dan Cleary scored with 4:45 left in regulation to tie it at 2 after Henrik Zetterberg fired a loose puck into traffic in front. Valtteri Filppula also scored for the Red Wings.

Chicago's Patrick Sharp, who scored his 20th goal, sustained an undisclosed upper-body injury late in the first period and didn't return. He was to be re-evaluated today.

Game highlights: Corey Perry had a hat trick and the host Ducks beat the Blue Jackets 7-4 in a matchup of the league's worst teams. A loss would have moved the Ducks into the league basement. Columbus' Jeff Carter, second on the team with 10 goals, separated a shoulder in the game.

Around the league: Bruins forward Brad Marchand faces a phone hearing with the league today for his Saturday hit on Canucks defenseman Sami Salo that Vancouver said left Salo with a concussion. Marchand got a penalty for clipping and a game misconduct. … The Penguins, who led the league entering Sunday with 210 man-games lost to injuries, have lost two more key players. Leading goal scorer James Neal (21) is out "weeks, not days" with a broken foot, sustained when he was hit by a shot Saturday against the Devils, coach Dan Bylsma said, and center Jordan Staal is out four to six weeks with a torn left MCL, sustained in a knee-on-knee collision with the Rangers' Mike Rupp on Friday. Staal isn't expected to need surgery, the team said.

  1. This Tampa Bay Lightning wing rides the newest wave of fan interaction

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — There are photos of Lightning fan Shaun Egger as a toddler at center ice at the then-Thunderome, aka Tropicana Field. He's played in the Lightning's high school hockey league for Palm Harbor University. But his closest personal encounter with players had been waving through a crowd after a training camp …

    Tampa Bay Lightning player J.T. Brown wears his anti UV glasses as he talks over the headset with a hockey fan while they play against each other on line in an XBOX NHL video game in Brown's game room at his home in south Tampa. The fan chose to be the Washington Capitals and Brown, of course, was the Tampa Bay Lightning. Brown interacts with fans through video game systems as he streams the games live on Twitch with plans for the proceeds to go to charity.
