DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings were in desperate need of a win and two veteran stars helped delivered it. Daniel Alfredsson scored two goals, including a power-play score at 1:03 of overtime and the Red Wings earned a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night. The win snapped Detroits six-game losing streak (0-4-2) and five-game home losing streak. "We were hanging in, playing some good hockey, and then all of a sudden were having some lapses where we give the other team way too many chances," Alfredsson said. "We did that some today, too, but overall we grinded." Alfredsson also had an assist and was set up for the winner by Pavel Datsyuk, who had three assists. Datsyuk threaded a cross-ice pass to Alfredsson, who rifled in a one-time slap shot from the inside edge of the left circle for his ninth goal of the season. Datsyuk drew the penalty on T.J. Brodie, who hooked Datsyuk as he tried to split the defence deep in the Calgary zone with 42 seconds left. Alfredsson also got his 700th assist earlier in the game. Detroit is without eight regulars due to injury. Joakim Andersson also scored for Detroit, defenceman Niklas Kronwall added two assists and goaltender Jonas Gustavsson made 20 saves. Mikael Backlund and Mark Giordano scored for Calgary. Mike Cammalleri had two assists and goalie Karri Ramo stopped 35 shots. "They had a little desperation and hunger in their game down the stretch," Cammalleri said. Calgary coach Bob Hartley disagreed with the penalty call on Brodie. "I didnt think it was a call," Hartley said. "I thought it was a hockey play. It was stick to stick." Alfredsson opened the scoring just 26 seconds into the game when he put in a loose puck from the slot. Backlund tied it at 5:11 with his fifth goal. He flipped in the puck after it caromed off the end boards. Andersson gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead at 11:38 of the second when Alfredssons shot deflected in off his skate. It was Anderssons fifth goal. It was Alfredssons 700th career assist. Giordanos power-play goal tied it at 2 with 4:27 left in the second period. He beat Gustavsson with a shot from the high slot just after a two-man Flames advantage ended. NOTE: Calgary C Mike Cammalleri returned after missing the previous game due to an illness.

Alex Ovechkin tallied a goal and an assist to lead the Capitals to Mondays home win over the Oilers. Ovechkin, who led the NHL with 32 goals in last seasons lockout-shortened campaign, already has six goals and nine points through six games in 2013-14. Nicklas Backstrom assisted on three goals, while Braden Holtby turned away 28- of-30 shots to help Washington improve its home record this season to 2-2-0. "Both teams were very desperate," said Caps forward Brooks Laich. "Theyre a team thats struggling as well. And for us, losing three in a row in regulation is not acceptable at any time." Holtby also earned his first win of the season and is 1-3-0 with a 3.56 goals against average in five games. He is expected to get a second straight start in net on Wednesday. Washington has two games left on its current five-game homestand and will close the residency Saturday against Columbus. The Rangers, meanwhile, are still scuffling through their season-opening nine- game road trip. The club is just 1-4-0 on the swing so far and is still nearly two weeks away from its home debut at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 28 against Montreal.

The bad news is the club still surrendered five goals or more for the third straight game. The Rangers did receive a pair of power-play tallies from Ryan Callahan in defeat, while Brad Richards notched a goal and an assist. "In the third, we just ran out of gas," Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault admitted. "Four games in six nights. You could tell the effort was there, the willingness was there, but the legs were having a tough time." Martin Biron stopped only 13-of-17 shots before being removed in favor of Henrik Lundqvist to begin the third period. Biron and forward Arron Asham have since been placed on waivers by the club and replaced on the roster by goaltender Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller, who were both recalled from Hartford of the AHL on Tuesday. Rumors have been flying that Biron is going to announce his retirement soon, but the veteran goalie stopped short of saying hes going to call it quits. "I think there are many options ahead of me," Biron said Monday after being waived. "Its not the best-case scenario obviously, but I am going to figure it all out. Lundqvist will get the start on Tuesday as the five-time Vezina Trophy finalist and one-time winner tries to shake off his awful start to the season. The Swedish netminder is 1-3-0 with a 4.21 goals against average in 2013-14, but he is 7-3-3 with a 2.67 GAA in 24 career regular-season games against the Caps.
