Franzen Gives Red Wings OT Win over Predators

Johan Franzen scored his sixth game-winning goal in the last twelve games with 1:39 left in overtime on Sunday, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 1-0 win over the Nashville Predators.

Franzen’s goal came off the rebound of a Henrik Zetterberg chance and slipped past the sprawling Dan Ellis.

Dominik Hasek stopped 22 Nashville shots to earn the shutout for Detroit.

On the day that the Red Wings celebrated legend Gordie Howe‘s 80th brithday, Franzen’s sixth game-winning goal of the month broke the record previously held by Howe.

Ellis stopped 35 shots before allowing the goal that ended his franchise-best shutout streak.
