 DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – It was back and forth all night but the Detroit Red Wings couldn’t break the third period tie and lose to the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 in overtime on Friday night.

As heard on WXYT 1270 – the Wings and the Maple Leafs were tied up at 3-3 ending regulation play.

Mike Komisarek scored 2:21 into overtime to give the Toronto Maple Leafs the preseason win.

Mike Brown added two goals and Jake Gardiner a goal and an assist for Toronto. Jonas Gustavsson stopped 26 shots.
