NHL – The Detroit Red Wings Beat The Minnesota Wild In A Shootout

Teemu Pulkkinen scored the first goal of his NHL career for Detroit, while Jonathan Ericsson, Gustav Nyquist and Xavier Ouellet also scored in regulation.

Pavel Datsyuk and Nyquist scored in the shootout round, while goalie Petr Mrazek stopped both Wild attempts.
