Datsyuk lifts Wings in OT

RECOMMENDED READING


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.
