Late surge powers Wings to 5-3 win
DETROIT __ It took awhile for the momentum to swing the Red Wings' way Wednesday in their preseason game against the Minnesota Wild at Joe Louis Arena. But after trailing by a goal, three different times, the Wings scored three consecutive time and cruised to a 5-3 win.

Down 3-2 in the third, the Wings struck back with back-to-back tallies, just 51-seconds apart, by Pavel Datsyuk and Dan Cleary for a 4-3 lead.

Jason Williams' power-play goal at 15:18, his second of the game, finished the scoring for the Wings, now 3-1-2 in the preseason. Mikael Samuelsson got things going for the Wings in the third, tying the score, 2-2, at 1:16. It was his second goal of the preseason.

Mikko Koivu gave the Wild a 3-2 lead at 8:13 of the third. Just 89-seconds later, Cleary's goal gave the Wings a one-goal lead. Williams' third goal of the preseason evened the score at 1-1 early in the second period. But Minnesota regained the lead, 2-1, on Pierre-Marc Bouchard's goal with the Wings down two skaters. For Bouchard, it was his first goal of the preseason.

The Wings had a great opportunity to tie the game earlier, but couldn't find the back of the net during their own lengthy two-man advantage in the first period.

The Wild (2-2) got the scoring started in the first. With a scramble in front of Dominik Hasek, Wild forward Pascal Dupuis swept a rebound past the fallen goaltender. Hasek, who played the entre game, made 21 saves on 24 shots.

The Wings travel to Tampa Bay on Thursday for a game against the Lightning, before finishing the preseason with a home-and-home series with Toronto this weekend.
