Panthers beat Red Wings 5-4 in SO, Nowitzki, Harris help Mavs top Pistons 116-106

Jan 27th, 2014 - Sports News

Nick Bjugstad scored in a shootout and Tim Thomas denied Detroit three times, lifting the Florida Panthers to a 5-4 win over the Red Wings on Sunday night after trailing by two goals twice in regulation.

The Red Wings blew a chance to win a season-high third straight game at home, allowing Brad Boyes to score a game-tying, short-handed goal with 3:46 left in the third period a couple minutes after teammate Drew Shore scored.

Detroit's Gustav Nyquist and Daniel Alfredsson scored 1:19 apart midway through the second and Riley Sheahan had a goal late in the second period to give the Red Wings a 3-1 lead.

Jonas Gustavsson, filling in for the injured Jimmy Howard, had 33 saves in his third straight start for the Red Wings.

Thomas stopped 26 shots.

Meanwhile....Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points, Devin Harris had a season-high 14 for the second straight game and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Detroit Pistons 116-106 Sunday night.

Nowitzki was 10 of 16 from the field in his second straight game wearing a sleeve on his sore left knee after sitting out a loss in Toronto. It's not the knee that required surgery and sidelined him the first 27 games last season.

Harris scored five straight points in the final minute of the third quarter to break a 79-all tie. His 3-pointer early in the fourth capped a 15-2 run for a 94-81 Dallas lead.

Brandon Jennings had 26 points and seven assists to lead the Pistons, who lost their fourth straight. Josh Smith had 25 points and eight rebounds.
