The Red Wings responded all right, albeit a bit late for comfort.

It took the suddenly surging road power play for the Wings to undo a two-goal deficit, and an overtime beauty from Pavel Datsyk got them a much-needed 3-2 victory Friday against the Oilers at Rexall Place. That improved the Wings to three points their last four games.

"Not the start we wanted," captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "I think we got a little better in the second, but then they get that second goal, tough timing. But we came into the third and we just wanted to keep going, stay with it, and we did. I think our battle level came up and we got some goals. It was nice to see."

Datsyuk ended an 11-game goal drought when he picked up a pass from Johan Franzen, crossed Edmonton's blue line, turned Jeff Petry inside out, and wired a wrist shot past Devan Dubnyk.
