Detroit has won three of its past four games, putting itself squarely in the wild-card conversation in the Eastern Conference. The Red Wings are tied with the Washington Capitals, one point behind the Columbus Blue Jackets and three in back of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the wild-card teams in the East. Detroit has two games in hand on the Capitals, Rangers and Maple Leafs. Detroit and Washington each have a four-point cushion on the 10th-place New Jersey Devils.

Detroit got some puck luck Thursday when a Daniel Alfredsson shot deflected off a Penguins defenseman and past Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury with less than a second remaining in overtime, giving the Red Wings the win and a crucial extra point in the standings.

"We made some mistakes, they made some mistakes, but we stayed with it and found a way to win a game," coach Mike Babcock said. "That was a big win for us."

Today, the Wings will look to get another big win in Minnesota.
