Red Wings 3, Oilers 2 (OT): Pavel Datsyuk ended his 11-game goal-scoring drought at 3:39 of overtime as visiting Detroit rallied to halt its three-game winless streak.

After receiving a pass from Johan Franzen, Datsyuk used a deke in the slot to get around Edmonton defenseman Jeff Petry before beating Devan Dubnyk with a wrist shot from the inner edge of the left faceoff circle. The goal was Datsyuk's first since Feb. 19 against Nashville.

Defenseman Niklas Kronwall recorded a goal and an assist, Valtteri Filppula also scored and Jimmy Howard made 30 saves for the Red Wings, who completed a sweep of the three-game season series between the clubs and improved to 11-0-2 in their last 13 meetings with the Oilers.

Taylor Hall scored a goal and set up another, Sam Gagner also tallied and Dubnyk turned aside 25 shots for Edmonton, which was beginning a four-game homestand after going 3-4-2 on its franchise-record nine-game road trip.

Hall gave Edmonton the lead just over 3 1/2 minutes into the game and Gagner tapped in the rebound of rookie Nail Yakupov's shot while on the doorstep with 3:42 remaining in the second period for a 2-0 advantage. Filppula halved the deficit at 4:27 of the third and Kronwall was credited with the tying goal during a power play with 5:53 left after Petry fired a loose puck into his own net.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Detroit outscored Edmonton 8-3 in the season series. ... The Red Wings have scored a power-play goal in each of their last two road games after going 0-for-36 over their first 10 contests away from home. ... Gagner has scored four goals over his last three games.
