NEW YORK - Dan Cleary scored the tiebreaking goal with 2 minutes, 3 seconds left and Jimmy Howard made 28 saves to lift the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers last night.

Detroit shook off an early 1-0 deficit and won the match between Original Six teams.

After Marian Gaborik failed to control the puck and get off a shot in the Detroit end, Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom started a rush the other way. Henrik Zetterberg sent a pass to Cleary, who banked in a shot off the skate of goalie Henrik Lundqvist for his 11th goal.

Detroit also got goals from Pavel Datsyuk and Kris Draper into an empty net.
