NHL Playoffs: Ducks Beat Red Wings in Overtime

The Anaheim Ducks scored in overtime to edge the host Detroit Red Wings, 4-3, in their National Hockey League semifinal playoff game Sunday.

Scott Niedermayer's second goal of the game came with just under six minutes left in overtime.

Detroit had taken a 3-2 lead early in the third period, skating with a two-man advantage, but Anaheim tied the score four minutes later.

The Ducks and Red Wings are now tied at a win each in their best-of-seven NHL Western Conference title series.

Anaheim hosts the next two games, Tuesday and Thursday.

In the East, the top-seeded Buffalo Sabres find themselves down two games to none to the Ottawa Senators, who host games Monday and Wednesday.
