Johan Franzen scored 1:48 into overtime, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators and a 3-2 lead in their first-round series. Valtteri Filppula, who scored Detroit's first goal, poked the puck away and Franzen ended up with it and beat Dan Ellis with a backhander.
Osgood turned away 20 of the 21 he faced in regulation and validated Detroit coach Mike Babcock's decision to start him over Dominik Hasek. Game 6 in the best-of-seven series is Sunday in Nashville. The Predators, who have lost all 10 postseason road games in franchise history, need to beat Detroit at home and as visitors in Game 7 to advance on Sunday.
