Red Wings' Late Game Heroics Down Flames
Third-period rallies are becoming routine for the Detroit Red Wings.
Henrik Zetterberg tied it on a power play with 3.2 seconds left in regulation and goalie Jimmy Howard off for an extra attacker, and Nicklas Lidstrom scored at 1:38 of overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 5-4 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday.
Detroit, which trailed 4-2 midway through the second period against the Flames, rallied to take a lead late in the third period Friday night in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild and scored four goals in the third period Wednesday night in a 7-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues .
“It felt good to come back. We’ve been behind a few games this year and found a way to turn it around,” Zetterberg said. “It’s nice when it happens.”
