Cholowski scores in OT, Red Wings defeat Ducks for third straight win


  • Dennis Cholowski scored at 2:04 of overtime and the Detroit Red Wings won their season-high third straight game, 4-3 against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Tuesday.
  • Dylan Larkin tied it with 37 seconds left in the third period during a 6-on-3 situation; Brendan Guhle (tripping) and Korbinian Holzer (hooking) committed penalties 21 seconds apart, and Jonathan Bernier was pulled for an extra attacker.
  • Cholowski won it when he beat Ryan Miller with a wrist shot from the right circle.
  • It was his second goal of the season.

“It all happened pretty fast,” Cholowski aaid. “I hopped on the ice, saw a gap in the middle and [Robby Fabbri] gave me a really good pass. Their D-man was kind of back in their zone a little bit, so I figured why not go in and shoot it, and it went in.”

  • Filip Hronek and Andreas Athanasiou also scored, Tyler Bertuzzi had two assists and Bernier made 24 saves for Detroit (7-12-1), which has won three in a row after going 1-11-1 the previous 13 games.

“Winning breeds confidence,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “We’ve got to continue to make sure we play good hockey for 60 minutes.”

  • Jakob Silfverberg, Josh Mahura and Cam Fowler scored, and Miller made 32 saves for Anaheim (9-8-2), which is winless in four straight games (0-2-2). Adam Henrique and Ondrej Kase each had two assists.

“We put ourselves in a tough position,” Silfverberg said. “It’s never a good sign when you have to kill off a 6-on-3 at the end of the game.”
