The Detroit Red Wings were on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff picture entering Thursday night’s slate of games, but they earned two huge points with a last-second victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Joe Louis Arena.
With less than five seconds remaining in overtime, veteran winger Daniel Alfredsson skated into the attacking zone on a 3-on-1 for the last scoring chance of the game. He fired a wrist shot at Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who made the initial save, but the rebound bounced off a player in front of the net and crossed the goal line with 0.4 seconds on the clock.
