Gustav Nyquist's power-play goal at 1:21 of overtime after the Red Wings blew a three-goal lead in the third period gave Detroit a 5-4 victory over the Anaheim Ducks to even their playoff series Thursday night.

Johan Franzen scored two goals and Damien Brunner had his first Stanley Cup playoff goal and two assists for the Red Wings, who survived a third-period collapse with a timely goal from Nyquist.

Bobby Ryan scored the tying goal with 2:22 left in regulation for the Ducks, who also got goals from captain Ryan Getzlaf and Kyle Palmieri while erasing Detroit's 4-1 lead with a phenomenal surge in the final minutes.

Game 3 is Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena.
