DETROIT -- Justin Abdelkader scored with 43.5 seconds left in overtime to complete a late comeback by the Detroit Red Wings in a 4-3 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Joe Louis Arena on Thursday.
Detroit trailed 3-1 with less than three minutes remaining and scored twice with an extra attacker.
Pascal Dupuis, Olli Maatta and Chris Kunitz scored for Pittsburgh. Blake Comeau had two assists, and Thomas Greiss made 27 saves in his first game of the season.
Abdelkader scored from the slot in overtime after Zetterberg deflected a Penguins pass attempt.
Zetterberg scored with 2:39 to go in the third period, and Kronwall tied it with his second goal of the night with 39 seconds remaining.
Kunitz gave the Penguins a 3-1 lead 8:29 into the second period when he beat Howard with a wrist shot from the top of the left circle. It was Kunitz's third goal of the season.
Greiss stopped Abdelkader's shot from the point during a Red Wings power play 4:09 into the second. Abdelkader was then hit in the nose by Zetterberg's wide wrist shot late in the period.
Dupuis opened the scoring 5:12 into the game when he converted a 2-on-1 rush with a wrist shot from the bottom of the left circle. The rush started after Red Wings defenseman Jakub Kindl couldn't handle a back pass from Pavel Datsyuk in the high slot.
Maatta made it 2-0 with 8:06 left in the first. He walked out of the left corner and his backhand shot trickled through Howard for his first goal of the season.
Kronwall scored with 5:00 remaining in the first period. He beat Greiss with a wrist shot from the high slot after Kronwall made a nice move around Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist.
Datsyuk, in his second game since returning from a separated shoulder, was on the ice for both Penguins goals for a minus-2 in the first period. A check by Pittsburgh defenseman Rob Scuderi in the first preseason game was what injured Datsyuk.
