DETROIT -- Brendan Morrison scored his second goal of the game 3:01 into overtime and the Vancouver Canucks overcame a two-goal deficit to beat the Red Wings, 4-3, on Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena.

Ryan Kesler and Markus Naslund also scored for Vancouver, and Roberto Luongo made 27 saves.

Mathieu Schneider, Nicklas Lidstrom and Dan Cleary had goals for Detroit, while Dominik Hasek stopped 26 shots.

Detroit defenseman Chris Chelios tied Phil Housley for most games played by an American-born player (1,495).

Morrison took a pass from Sami Salo for a breakaway from the blue line and beat Hasek with a shot.

Morrison tied it with a 5-on-3 power-play goal 7:23 into the third period. He fired a shot over a prone Hasek from the bottom of the right circle.

Naslund got his 11th goal earlier in the third period on a rebound of a shot by Henrik Sedin to make it 3-2. The goal was caused by a turnover by Cleary.

Kesler opened the scoring just 18 seconds in when his one-timer from the top of the right circle beat Hasek. Detroit tied it when Schneider knocked the puck in out of midair off a goalmouth scramble. The play was video reviewed.

Roberto Luongo makes a remarkable save in the third period that kept the score tied, 3-3, Wednesday. Dave Reginek
Lidstrom gave the Red Wings the lead with a power-play goal later in the opening period, when the rebound of his shot from the point bounced in off the skate of Vancouver defenseman Mattias Ohlund.

Cleary made it 3-1 with a minute left in the second period with a backhand shot over Luongo after Cleary retrieved his own rebound from beside the net.

Just 35 seconds earlier, an apparent goal by Wings forward Mikael Samuelsson was waved off because of "incidental contact in the crease." Ohlund was pushing Tomas Holmstrom into Luongo when Samuelsson fired in the puck.
