    Jonas Hiller stopped the first 32 shots through two-plus periods, looking like he was going to shut out the Detroit Red Wings in consecutive games.

    Then the Red Wings broke through after getting a break and making one of their own to force overtime.

    Hiller had a chance to extend the game even deeper into Monday night, but he guessed wrong and it was costly for the Anaheim Ducks.

    He stayed in net -- instead of leaving it to play the puck sooner -- and Damien Brunner capped a blur of a sequence with a goal 4:50 into overtime. That lifted Detroit to a 3-2 series evening win over Anaheim in Game 4.

    "The longer you can put this off, the better I like our chances," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said.
