Madden's Late Tally In OT Lifts Wild Over Red Wings


John Madden led the Minnesota Wild to a dramatic road victory on a difficult night for the veteran center.

Madden scored 4:18 into overtime and the Wild beat Detroit 4-3 on Friday, snapping the Red Wings’ four-game winning streak.

When he returned to the locker room, Madden learned former NHL coach Pat Burns had died of cancer at age 58. Madden played for Burns with the New Jersey Devils, where the two won a Stanley Cup in 2003.

“I’m very thrilled to have known Pat Burns,” Madden said somberly. “He knew my personality and made me feel like I was an important part of the team.”
