The National Hockey League's team with the best power play beat the team with the best penalty killing skills Sunday, as the Detroit Red Wings topped the Minnesota Wild 3-2.

The league-leading Red Wings scored two goals with a man advantage in the second period and dominated the rest of the game for their 27th road victory of the season.

The New Jersey Devils scored in overtime to edge the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2. Brian Gionta scored midway through the five-minute extra session to lift the Devils on the road in Pittsburgh.
