4.24.15: Tigers fall to the Yankees while Wings drop game in OT
DETROIT (AP) — Brian McCann drove in Jacoby Ellsbury with the tie-breaking run in the eighth inning and the New York Yankees held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 yesterday afternoon. Ellsbury led off the eighth with a double off Tom Gorzelanny. Anibal Sanchez allowed one run on one hit and four walks in 6 1/3 innings.
— Tyler Johnson scored 2:25 into overtime to lift the Lightning to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings last night. The Red Wings led 2-0 in the third period before Johnson scored with 5:26 remaining. He then assisted on Ondrej Palat’s tying goal 77 seconds later. Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson scored in the second period for Detroit.
In last night’s game, the Tampa Bay goalie was victimized by a fluky goal in the second period against Detroit last night in Game 4 of their playoff series. Joakim Andersson’s shot bounced routinely off Bishop and up in the air. Bishop tried to bat the puck away with his stick but instead accidentally knocked it back off the crossbar. The puck fell to the ice and slowly slid across the goal line.
