    Detroit squandered a three-goal lead in the third period before centre Pavel Datsyuk and right winger Gustav Nyquist scored in the shootout to give the Red Wings a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild.

    The Red Wings won their fourth consecutive game to remain in third place in the Eastern Conference.

    Elsewhere, centre Alex Killorn scored two of Tampa Bay's three third-period goals as the Lightning surged to a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

    The Lightning (30-14-4) notched their eighth consecutive home victory to regain top spot in the Eastern Conference, while Vancouver (26-16-3) had its three-game winning streak halted.

    Veteran winger Teddy Purcell and center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored in the final 4:11 of regulation with the former netting the game-winner in the fourth round of the shootout to give Edmonton an unlikely 5-4 road win over the Washington Capitals.
