Read the reports from Wednesday’s NHL games.

Senators defeat Red Wings

Shane Pinto scored 2:05 into overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday.

Pinto deflected a pass from Quebec defender Thomas Chabot. It was his second goal in six games this season.

Brady Tkachuk and Mark Kastelic also scored for the Senators, who have won three of the four games between the two teams this season. Joonas Korpisalo blocked 23 pucks.

Daniel Sprong and Dylan Larkin sparkled the red light for the Red Wings, who finished January with a 9-2-2 record. Alex Lyon made 22 saves.

Larkin extended his point streak to 12 games by scoring his 23e net of the season — a high for the Red Wings.

During the last duel between the two teams in December, Larkin lost consciousness on the ice, knocked out by a hit by Mathieu Joseph. On Wednesday, the Quebecer was booed every time he touched the puck.

Both teams were playing their last game before the National Hockey League All-Star break.
