Red Wings even series with Ducks on Brunner’s OT winner

Updated: May 6, 2013


Damien Brunner scored at 15:10 of overtime to
give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 4 of this
Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Gustav Nyquist had split the defense up the middle and tried to get a shot on
net, but Jonas Hiller poked the puck away before he could get a stick on it.
The puck, though, came out and there were no defenders to clear the puck and
Brunner slammed it home to help the Red Wings even this best-of-seven series
at 2-2.

Pavel Datsyuk tied the game in regulation while Brendan Smith added a goal and
an assist for the Red Wings, who have taken both wins in the series in
overtime. Jimmy Howard made 31 stops in the win.

David Steckel and Matt Beleskey scored for the Ducks, who got 46 stops from
Hiller in the contest.

This series heads back to Anaheim where Game 5 will be played on Wednesday
