Henrik Zetterberg, Dylan Larkin and Andreas Athanasiou scored for Detroit, The Red Wings have lost three straight.

Voracek completed Philadelphia’s comeback by finishing a 2-on-1 with Claude Giroux 1:41 into the 3-on-3 overtime. The assist extended Giroux’s points streak to a career-high 10 games.

Streit tied it at 3 on a rebound after a scrum in front of the net. Goalie Petr Mrazek was taken out on the play when Frans Nielsen pushed Philadelphia’s Brayden Schenn into him. Detroit challenged the goal, claiming goalie interference, but it stood after a video review.
