Gustav Nyquist scored on a rebound with 28 seconds left in overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens in the first post-Olympic game for both teams Wednesday night.

Montreal had goalie Peter Budaj pulled for an extra attacker when captain Brian Gionta scored with 29 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

A team coached by Detroit’s Mike Babcock, who led Canada to the gold medal, had not allowed a goal since Lauris Darzins got one at 15:41 of the first period of Canada’s 2-1 win over Latvia in the quarterfinals in Sochi.

Todd Bertuzzi scored in the first period for Detroit.
