Blackhawks Vs. Red Wings Score Update: Bertuzzi Scores OT Winner For Red Wings

After a late rally by the Chicago Blackhawks, which saw Marian Hossa score the tying goal with just 58 seconds remaining in the third period to force overtime, the Blackhawks were given a taste of their own medicine, as Todd Bertuzzi netted the game-winning goal with just 39 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings the 3-2 (OT) win.

The goal from Bertuzzi, which was assisted by Valtteri Filppulas and Nicklas Lidstrom, was the second goal of the game for the veteran RW. Bertuzzi has now found the back of the net eight times this season. With the victory, the Red Wings now trail the Blackhawks by just one point in the Central Division standings. Although he didn't score, Pavel Datsyuk was excellent, dishing out two assists in the victory.
