ST. PAUL, Minn. – Pierre-Marc Bouchard beat Chris Osgood on a breakaway in overtime to give the Minnesota Wild a 3-2 comeback victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Tied 1-1 with less than 4 minutes to play in regulation, the teams traded goals just 16 seconds apart. Kris Draper gave the Red Wings their first lead, lifting his own rebound over Manny Fernandez’s left leg pad. After the ensuing faceoff, Wild forward Mark Parrish deflected Keith Carney’s shot that was heading wide left past Osgood, tying the game at 2-2.

Fernandez had 29 saves in the win, while Osgood stopped 32 shots in his first overtime loss of the season.
