Red Wings Beat Kings 3-2 In Shootout After Kronwall’s Wild Goal To Tie Game At End Regulation

DETROIT (AP) — Tomas Tatar scored and Jimmy Howard stopped all three shots he faced in a shootout, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

The Red Wings, who lost their two previous games 1-0, received a big break late in regulation.

Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall’s shot was deflected and bounced off the net out of play, came back and struck goalie Jonathan Quick’s back, and went in to tie the game with 26.1 seconds left.

The Kings tried to protest, but the goal wasn’t reviewable because none of the officials blew a whistle to stop play when the puck hit the net.

Los Angeles took the lead when Jeff Carter scored off a rebound during a power play with 2:15 left in the third period.
