CHICAGO -- The Red Wings defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout at United Center on Wednesday.

After a game filled with end-to-end action, Detroit (32-14-10) ended a three-game losing streak on shootout goals by Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar combined with two saves by goalie Jimmy Howard, who made 32 through regulation and overtime.

The Red Wings are 3-8 in shootouts.

Jonathan Toews scored the shootout goal for the Blackhawks (35-18-5), who are 7-3 in shootouts and 2-0-3 in the first five of their eight-game homestand.

Detroit forward Darren Helm and Chicago forward Kris Versteeg created overtime with goals in the final 2:06 of regulation.

Helm broke a 1-1 tie at 17:54 before Versteeg tied it 2-2 at 18:37 with a goal credited to him after his shot appeared to hit Howard's glove, then Toews, and then Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall before going into the net.

Tatar scored in regulation for the Red Wings, and left wing Brandon Saad scored the first goal for the Blackhawks.

Howard made 17 saves in the first period, including six while Detroit was shorthanded. During even-strength play, Chicago attempted 22 shots to 10 for Detroit.

Tatar and Saad scored 39 seconds apart near the end of the second period. Tatar scored his 24th goal off a backhand feed from Darren Helm at 16:10, and Saad scored his 18th off a wrist shot at 16:49 to extend his point streak to four games.
