Red Wings fans who've taken to booing Marian Hossa now have some extra fuel.

Hossa scored the winner in overtime Monday, sending the Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory.

He scored at 51 seconds of overtime, on the power play, giving the defending Stanley Cup champs a much-needed victory.

With Chicago scrambling to just make the playoffs, every point is crucial. Hossa delivered - as he did for a season with Detroit two years ago - with a laser.

"He has a great shot and he had a few opportunities the whole game," said goalie Joey MacDonald, who was superb with 38 saves. "I pushed out and got as big as possible. (But) guys like that, when he tees it up from the hash marks, he made a good shot there."

Hossa had seven shots on net but only one got past MacDonald.

"Good things happened at the end," Hossa said. "I had so many shots. Their goalie played great. I was happy that one finally went in. We were desperate to get points."

Henrik Zetterberg's hooking penalty on Patrick Kane in the closing seconds of regulation enabled the Blackhawks to get the power play.

Both teams had quality chances, but MacDonald and Chicago goalie Corey Crawford (33 saves) were up to the challenge.

The key was Chicago getting two power-play goals on its five opportunities, while the Wings converted once on four chances.
