Jeff Petry might want to file sexual harassment charges because Pavel Datsyuk absolutely undressed him.
At the 3:39 mark of OT Pavel Datsyuk took pass from Johan Franzen and really did what he does best, making the opposing defense look silly to eventually light the lamp giving the Wings a 3-2 win.
After being down 2-0 it looked like the Wings were on their way to their 4th straight loss with an offense that continued to have trouble scoring goals. However Valtteri Filppula was finally able to get the Wings on the board with his second goal in as many games since coming back from injury. Then with under 10 minutes remaining Niklas Kronwall was able to tie the game at 2 after the Oilers looked to put it in their own net.
Jimmy Howard made 30 saves after sitting out the night with what was being described as flu like symptoms.
Total shots on goal were 32-28 in favor of Detroit.
