Dylan Larkin scored the tying goal during a 6-on-3 advantage with 37 seconds left in regulation, and Dennis Cholowski scored with 2:56 on the clock in overtime to send the Detroit Red Wings to their third straight victory, 4-3 over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.

After Ducks defensemen Brendan Guhle and Korbinian Holzer took penalties 21 seconds apart in the waning moments of regulation, Larkin scored from a sharp angle while the Red Wings had three extra skaters on the ice with their goalie pulled.

Cholowski then got his second goal of the season on a long shot past Ryan Miller, who made 32 saves for Anaheim.

Detroit has its first three-game winning streak this season after winning for just the fourth time in 16 games.


Jakob Silfverberg, Josh Mahura and Cam Fowler scored in the second period for the Ducks, who fell to 2-2-2 on their seven-game homestand. Ondrej Kase and Adam Henrique had two assists apiece, but Anaheim lost for the first time in seven games this season when scoring at least three goals.

Filip Hronek and Andreas Athanasiou scored in the second period for the Red Wings, and Jonathan Bernier stopped 24 shots against his former team.

After a scoreless first period, Silfverberg and Mahura scored 29 seconds apart for Anaheim in the opening minute of the second. Silfverberg hacked at a loose puck underneath Bernier to get his eighth goal of the season, and Mahura put a long shot past a screen.

Hronek connected for his first goal in seven games, but Fowler answered with a slick shot off a cross-ice pass from Ryan Getzlaf. Athanasiou scored late in the second with a slick deflection of Valtteri Filppula’s shot.
