What a thriller in Detroit!

Despite the fact that the Los Angeles Kings peppered netminder Jimmy Howard with 48 shots and scored the equalizer with under a minute left in regulation, it wasn't to be as Jonathan Ericsson buries one with just 4.5 seconds left to give the Red Wings the 3-2 victory.

With the win, the Red Wings extend their winning streak to three games, and improve their home record to 5-2-0.

Meanwhile the Kings drop to 3-5-2 as their Stanley Cup hangover continues.

With only 48 games in this shortened season, Los Angeles will need to turn things around soon.
