DETROIT --Marian Hossa's decision to leave Pittsburgh to sign with Detroit will only be validated if he helps the Red Wings hoist the Stanley Cup.

Hossa's former teammates, though, can feel good about beating him in their first shot.

Jordan Staal had a hat trick in the third period and set up Ruslan Fedotenko's winning goal with 1:11 in overtime, lifting the Penguins to a 7-6 comeback win over the Red Wings on Tuesday night.

WINGS CORNER

Hossa had two assists against the team he left as a free agent to chase a Cup in Detroit, signing a one-year deal instead of staying in Pittsburgh for a longer and more lucrative contract.

Detroit's Jiri Hudler scored midway through the third, seemingly sealing the victory by giving the defending champions a two-goal lead in the Stanley Cup rematch.

But Staal's second goal with 4:09 left pulled Pittsburgh within one, then he forced overtime by scoring on a rebound off star defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom.

Staal set up the overtime goal by lifting Pavel Datsyuk's stick from behind, snagging the puck away and setting up Fedotenko's one-timer with a perfect pass to the right circle.

Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury and Detroit's Chris Osgood both faced 34 shots.

Sidney Crosby scored game's first goal at 4:34 of the first, giving Pittsburgh its only lead in regulation.

Darren McCarty, Tomas Holmstrom, Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg, and Datsyuk also scored for Detroit.

Pittsburgh's Maxime Talbot scored off his skate, and Evgeni Malkin extended his points streak to 11 games with a goal in the Staal-dominated third period.

GAME NOTES: Franzen returned after missing five games with a sprained left knee. ... Plenty of Penguins fans made their way into Joe Louis Arena, which had pockets of empty seats in both the upper and lower levels in another sign of how badly the Motor City's economy is sagging.
