ROMULUS — Gustav Nyquist was the last Wings rookie to score an overtime goal in the playoffs since Shawn Burr scored 4:51 to give Detroit a 4-3 win over Chicago on April 11, 1987.
“Gus has played great for us ever since he came up,” defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “Creating chances over and over out there, playing real well for us. I’m happy he got the goal and I’m pretty sure the confidence will be there even higher now.”
Nyquist took a pretty pass from Valtteri Filppula and scored a power play goal 1:26 into overtime.
