DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Red Wings are doing what they can to cling onto mathematical hopes of extending their playoff streak to 26.

Andreas Athanasiou scored 1:52 into overtime on a breakaway, lifting the Red Wings to a 3-2 win Sunday over the reeling Minnesota Wild.

Detroit, the Atlantic Division's last-place team, started the day 14 points behind Boston for the final wild-card spot with two weeks left in the regular season. The Red Wings are 4-1-1 in their last six games after a 23-game stretch in which they won just six games.
