Chicago 3, Detroit 2 (OT): Late call against Red Wings is a killer

Chicago capitalizes on carryover penalty in OT

The Red Wings were baffled by some calls -- or lack thereof -- Monday night, but didn't dispute the one that ended up being the most costly.

With Henrik Zetterberg cooling his heels after being called for hooking Patrick Kane with seconds left in regulation, Marian Hossa ended a long dry spell against his former team and unleashed a shot from the left circle that sank into the back of Detroit's net, handing the Wings a 3-2 loss 51 seconds into overtime at Joe Louis Arena.

"It was a penalty," Zetterberg said. "He made a good move there on me, and I think they were 2 on 1, so I hooked him."

Zetterberg tied the game early in the third period. Nicklas Lidstrom's first-period goal made him the first NHL defenseman older than 40 with 60 points in a season.

It was Hossa's first goal in eight games against the Wings since he went from Detroit to Chicago in the summer of 2009.

"Good things happened at the end," Hossa said. "I had so many shots tonight. Their goalie played great. I was happy that one finally went in."

Joey MacDonald finished with 38 saves, allowing two goals during a first period that was slowed by penalties so numerous only half the period was played at even strength.

"It was a lot of special teams in the first," Zetterberg said. "It's tough to get momentum in a game, but I think both teams figured it out pretty good."
