Pens Edge Red Wings
Detroit — Daniel Alfredsson scored his second goal of the game with 1 second left in overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.
Alfredsson’s shot went off Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and appeared to be knocked into the net by Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi, who scored into his own net earlier in the game. The goal stood after video review.
Detroit was up 2-0, trailed 3-2 and led 4-3 lead with 7:43 left. Craig Adams pulled Pittsburgh back into a tie two minutes later.
Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and Todd Bertuzzi also scored for Detroit.

Fleury made 25 saves. Detroit’s Jimmy Howard stopped 39 shots.

Devils 4, Wild 3 (ot)
Newark, n.j. — Andy Greene scored from in close 2 minutes into overtime and the Devils snapped a three-game losing streak with a victory over Minnesota in Zach Parise’s first game back in New Jersey against his former teammates.
Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias each had three assists and combined to set up the game-winner for New Jersey, which blew a two-goal third-period lead.

Clarke MacArthur, Erik Karlsson, Ales Hemsky and Milan Michalek scored for the Senators. Robin Lehner had 23 saves while losing his sixth straight game. Ottawa is 0-3-2 in its last five.
