Play your game. Remain calm. Do the things that got you into the playoffs and helped produce a three-goal lead early in the third period Thursday.

That was the message the Detroit Red Wings leaders preached before overtime in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series with the Anaheim Ducks.

Rookie Gustav Nyquist was listening.

After watching the Ducks score three times in less than 10 minutes during the third period to force overtime, Nyquist bagged his first career playoff goal 1:21 into OT to give the Red Wings a dramatic 5-4 victory at the Honda Center.
