Despite being outshot by a woeful margin, gutsy Edmonton halted Detroit's second seven-game win streak of the season in a 4-3 shootout. Oilers goalie Dwayne Roloson had to make 39 saves, compared with opposite number Dominik Hasek's paltry 22. Once at the one-on-one stage, Ales Hemsky shot the winner, giving him two goals on the day.
Edmonton improved to an absurd 9-1 in shootouts this year. Detroit's Henrik Zetterberg had two regulation goals but was turned away at the end; Red Wing Mark Hartigan notched his team's other tally. Joni Pitkanen and Fernando Pisani also had goals in regulation, during which the lead was never more than one.
