Miller's SO goal gives Red Wings win over Wild

ST. PAUL, MN – Drew Miller scored his first career shootout goal in the eighth round and the Detroit Red Wings survived Minnesota's third-period rally to beat the Wild 4-3 on
Thursday night.

Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard stopped six shots in the shootout and denied Eric Belanger in the eighth round to set up Miller's winner. Miller beat Niklas Backstrom, who entered the game after the first period in place of injured starter Josh Harding.

The Wild overcame a 3-1 deficit with third-period goals from Martin Havlat and Andrew Brunette.
