Red Wings edge Blackhawks in Detroit
Chicago Blackhawks 3, Detroit Red Wings 4

Todd Bertuzzi scored a highlight-reel goal in the shootout and Henrik Zetterberg followed with the decisive tally as the Red Wings claimed a 4-3 win over the rival Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena.

Zetterberg also scored in regulation for the Red Wings, while Valtteri Filppula and Nicklas Lidstrom had power-play goals. On a down note, Detroit lost rookie forward Jan Mursak for an unknown length of time due to a fractured left ankle.

Rookie forward Brandon Pirri helped the Blackhawks rally from a 3-1 deficit with a pair of goals and also scored in the shootout. Jimmy Hayes, another prospect trying to make the team, had their other goal.

Pirri scored on the Blackhawks' first attempt against Ty Conklin in the shootout, but Bertuzzi followed with a spectacular move in which he put the puck between his legs, passed it to himself and then beat Alexander Salak on a backhander.

Zetterberg also solved Salak sandwiched between Conklin stops on Michael Frolik and Brandon Saad to give Detroit the victory.

Filppula opened the scoring 7:35 into the first period and Zetterberg gave the Wings a 2-0 lead with 47 seconds left before intermission.

Pirri cut the deficit in half for the Blackhawks by scoring a shorthanded goal 7:32 into the second, but Lidstrom quickly got it back with a power-play tally 1:23 later.

Hayes scored with 3:59 left in the second and Pirri had the only goal of the third, at the 9:33 mark, to allow Chicago to force overtime.
