DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – Jonathan Ericsson’s last second dramatics pushed the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the reigning Stanley Cup champions Los Angeles Kings.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket - Pavel Datsyuk got the Wings (7-4-1) on the board first and Damien Brunner gave Detroit a cushion scoring a goal on a slap shot but the Kings responded before the end of the first period with a goal by Anze Kopitar ending the first period with the Wings up 2-1.

Wings goalie Jimmy Howard stopped 45 of 47 shots on goal and later said it was a great feeling to pull it off.

It was quiet until late in the third period when Alec Martinez scored for the Kings on a backhand shot to tie the game at 2-all with less than a minute left in the game.

Fifty seconds later Ericsson came back with slap shot that put the Red Wings ahead with 3 seconds left on the clock.

The Los Angeles Kings fall to 3-5-2 on the season – a less then stellar beginning for the returning champs.

Tune in to 97.1 The Ticket on Wednesday as the Detroit Red Wings host the St. Louis Blues – puck drops at 7:30 p.m.
