Brule nets shootout winner as Oilers top Red Wings

EDMONTON, Alb. — Gilbert Brule scored the shootout winner and also had two assists as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Friday night.

Detroit's Brian Rafalski scored during a scramble in front of the net with 0.2 seconds left in regulation to send it to overtime.

Andrew Cogliano and Ryan Whitney also had goals for the last-place Oilers, who snapped a five-game losing streak despite being outshot 17-3 in the third period.

Patrick Eaves scored the other goal for the Red Wings, whose three-game winning streak ended.

The point for the Red Wings was crucial as it prevented the Calgary Flames from moving past them into sole possession of eighth place in the Western Conference.
