Franzen scores in OT, Red Wings rally for 3-2 win

Updated:
Johan Franzen scored a power-play goal with 48.5 seconds left in overtime, rallying the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. Ian White and Jiri Hudler also scored for Detroit, which trailed 2-0 in the second period. After a scramble in front of the Wild net, Holmstrom backhanded a pass a couple of feet, and Franzen, fought off a check and poked it in. The play was upheld by video review. It was Detroit's first power-play goal in 19 chances this season. Detroit is off to its first 4-0 start since 1997-98, a season that ended with the Red Wings hoisting the Stanley Cup. The Red Wings won a team-best six in a row to begin the 1972-73 season. Greg Zanon and Cal Clutterbuck scored for Minnesota, which was outshot 41-14. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press.
