Pavel Datsyuk scored at 3:39 of overtime to give Detroit a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night, snapping the Red Wings' three-game skid. Valtteri Filppula and Niklas Kronwall scored in regulation for Detroit, and Jimmy Howard had 30 saves. Taylor Hall and Sam Gagner had the Oilers' goals, and Devan Dubnyk finished with 25 saves. On the game-winner, Datsyuk made a nice move to get past defender Jeff Petry and blasted a shot past Dubnyk. Kronwall got credit for the tying goal with 5:53 to go in the third when Petry knocked the puck into the Oilers' net in an attempt to clear a big rebound on Kronwall's shot. The Oilers started the scoring 3 1/2 minutes in as Hall found a seam to slip past two Detroit defenders up the middle and beat Howard with a low wrist shot. Edmonton had 10 shots in the first period while the Red Wings were only able to direct five shots on Dubnyk. The Oilers came close to adding to their lead one minute into the second peri...

GDT - Game 28: Red Wings (12-10-5) at Oilers (10-11-5) 9:30

The Wings take their horrendous 3-6-2 road record to EDM tonight trying to snap their current 0-2-1 skid; which has seen them fall out of playoff position.  DET find themselves 9th in the WC, only 3 pts from 4th position, and only 5 pts from 15th. It has been quite some time since the Wings were fighting just to try to get into the playoffs.  There is much angst among the 19...

Big Name Talk

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, Even after Brian Burke’s departure as GM, the Leafs still would love to put Perry’s truculence and testosterone in the lineup. But you can’t rule out Detroit either, a team that bid for Suter last summer and came up short. The Red Wings have money to spend and Perry would give them the same qualities that Brendan Shanahan did...

GDT - Game 29: Red Wings (13-10-5) at Canucks (13-7-6) 10:00

Magically Delicious puts the team on his back last night at EDM, and salvaged a 3-2 win for the Wings.  The EDM game is somewhat of a microcosim of this season, ridiculous inconsistency.  Through the first 40 minutes, the OIL were having their way, generating chances with their speed and had DET looking flat-footed and essentially lost (rolling out the red-carpet for Taylor Hall...

Red Wings-Canucks quick take: Dead bull with a life from the low, I’ll be massive conquistador

The Detroit Red Wings' 5-2 victory against the Vancouver Canucks started with a stunned Jimmy Howard wondering how his team parted like the red sea with a red light glowing behind him, and it concluded with Howard gloving a final-second puck like he was picking cherries.

Red Wings-Oilers quick take: I’m not sure what that was, other than Datsyukian

Updated at 12:28 AM: The news on Kyle Quincey's cheek is not good.

The team seemed out of sorts, skating on the wrong side...
