The Wings started out slow, but did pick up the pace later in the first period.
Teams exchanged goals in the second and on to the third tied 1-1.
Boston scored first in the third period but Athanasiou tied the game just over two minutes later.
No more goals so off they went to OT.
After a gret save by Jimmy Howars, Athanasiou with the game winner.

Hope everyone has a great and peaceful Thanksgiving tomorrow.
