VIDEO: Red Wings Beat Leafs In Overtime Thriller

The Red Wings let a three goal lead slip away in the third period, but Dylan Larkin scored at 2:48 in overtime to give Detroit a 5-4 win against the Maple Leafs in Toronto Thursday night.

 Larkin rushed in in on a breakaway after taking a pass from Gustav Nyquist, who had a goal and two assists, and beat Garret Sparks between the pads to snap the Leafs' five-game winning streak.

 

 

Mike Green, with a goal and an assist, Jonathan Ericsson and Luke Glendening also scored for Detroit while goalie Jonathan Bernier stopped 27 shots for the Wings.

Andreas Johnsson and Kasperi Kapanen, with a goal and an assist each, John Tavares and Zach Hyman scored for Toronto.

Garret Sparks made 27 saves for the Leafs in the loss.

William Nylander suited up for his first game since coming to terms with Toronto on a new six-year, US$45-million contract over the weekend to end a contract impasse that cost the restricted free agent the season's first 26 games, but wasn't a factor.
