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. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

  3. Rays journal: Sergio Romo excited for fresh start in AL

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC


    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
