DETROIT -- Teddy Purcell's goal at 3:51 of overtime gave the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Ryan Malone and Steven Stamkos also scored for Tampa Bay, which got its first win over Detroit since Jan. 12, 1994. Ben Bishop stopped 25 shots.

Henrik Zetterberg scored both goals for Detroit, which lost its fifth straight at home. Jimmy Howard made 31 saves.

Purcell got his fifth goal, from the slot, after a turnover by Kyle Quincey behind the Detroit net.

Zetterberg tied the game with 4:12 left in the third on a slap shot from the right circle for his second of the game and 10th goal of the season.

Stamkos gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead with 7:10 left in the second period. He beat Howard with a wrist shot from the right circle.

Stamkos' 14th goal came four seconds after Tampa Bay had killed off 5:24 of consecutive Detroit power-play time with 36 seconds of it a two-man advantage.

In all, the Lightning had only been at even strength for 13 seconds of the previous 7:37 when the final penalty ended.

The goal extended Stamkos' goal streak to six games and his points streak to eight.

Zetterberg opened the scoring 3:51 into the game when he intercepted Stamkos' pass in the slot and put a wrist shot past Bishop.

Malone tied it at 1 with 9:49 remaining in the opening period when he put in the rebound of his own wrap-around attempt. It was Malone's second goal.

GAME NOTES: It was Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula's first game against his former team after signing a five-year, $25 million free agent contract with Tampa Bay in July. Filppula spent his first eight NHL seasons with the Red Wings. ... Detroit C Stephen Weiss didn't play because of a sore groin and RW Johan Franzen missed his fourth game with an upper body injury/illness. ... Lightning GM Steve Yzerman played his entire 22-season Hall of Fame career with the Red Wings and was the Detroit captain for the last 19 seasons. . The Red Wings recalled C Luke Glendening and D Xavier Ouellet from their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids earlier on Saturday.
