GLENDALE, Arizona -- Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall scored with 16 seconds left in overtime Saturday night, carrying the Red Wings to a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes.
The goal came with seven seconds remaining in the Red Wings' eighth power play of the night. They had been held scoreless with the extra attacker until that point.
The Coyotes had opened the scoring with ten seconds remaining in the first period.
After winning a faceoff in the Detroit end, the Coyotes worked the puck down to the corner. Martin Hanzel jumped to open space in the slot and Wojtek Wolski sent the puck to him for a one-timer past Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard.
Bryzgalov stopped 31 of 33 shots on the night while Howard made 25 saves on 26 Phoenix chances.
Detroit held the Coyotes scoreless on four power play tries.
The Red Wings are now off until Thursday when they host the Calgary Flames to begin a four-game homestand.
