Wings Sink Sens In O.T.
Andreas Athanasiou scored six seconds into overtime to give the Red Wings a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators.
It was the second goal of the night for Athanasiou, who also had a penalty shot stopped in the third period. Dylan Larkin took the opening faceoff in overtime and, after the puck went forward a bit, both Athanasiou and Ottawa standout Erik Karlsson reached for it.
Athanasiou was able to control it and skated in behind Karlsson on a breakaway. He beat goalie Craig Anderson with a backhander high to the glove side.
Ryan Dzingel scored for the Senators.
Detroit has won three in a row for the first time this season.
The Red Wings improved to 1-6 in games decided in overtime, although they have won three shootouts. The Wings host the Florida Panthers tomorrow night.
Ottawa lost for the 18th time in 22 games.
