DETROIT -- Desperation fueled the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night. David Legwand had a goal and an assist, and Detroit held off the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 to move into seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Red Wings are trying to stretch their playoff streak to 23 seasons, the longest such active streak in North American professional sports. "We got to find to find a way to win some games here to get in. Weve got Washington breathing down our necks and Columbus is right with us here, and Torontos in the mix too," said Gustav Nyquist, who extended his point streak to nine games with his 27th goal. "... Everyones going to be playing for their playoff lives here. Its a good thing we have it in our own hands at least." Jonas Gustavsson stopped 26 shots and Joakim Andersson also scored for Detroit, which won 4-2 in Toronto on Saturday night. "Its huge obviously to get four points on a back-to-back weekend is big," Legwand said. "Especially the race is so tight and if we can start gaining some ground here and getting some traction well be all right." It was Mike Babcocks 411th win as the Red Wings coach. He passed Scotty Bowman and moved into second place in franchise history behind Jack Adams (413). "Scottys the greatest coach of all time in our business. The way the business was then and the way it is now, to have the amount of wins Scotty has is impossible and youre not going to get to coach so many Stanley Cup champions," Babcock said. "Youre not able to keep teams together like they used to. Scotty should be in a class by himself." Valtteri Filppula and Sami Salo scored for Tampa Bay and Ben Bishop made 27 saves. "We played a pretty good game. ... Got a solid 60 minutes, but didnt get the result we wanted," Lightning centre Steven Stamkos said. "Theyre a good team and they played desperate game." Salo scored his fourth goal to pull Tampa Bay within 3-2 with 4:29 left in the third. Legwand made it 3-1 with a power-play goal with 3:24 left in the second period, tipping in Johan Franzens shot for his 13th goal. Nyquist gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead with 4:36 remaining in the opening period with his spectacular goal. He was being bothered by Lightning defenceman Matthew Carle on a breakaway and after Carle thwarted the initial attempt, Nyquist slid in a shot from along the goal line. Legwand got the assist. "Leggy (Legwand) made a real nice play up the middle and I just tried to get good body position on the D-man there to get an opportunity to score," Nyquist said. "Made that last move to my backhand and noticed that the goalie was out of the net. I lost the puck a little bit and it went behind the goal line there. I was hoping the goalie was still out of the net on the other side so I just tried to spin and get it on net as fast as possible. Nice to see it go in." Nyquist has 11 goals and two assists during his streak, and 22 goals in his last 27 games. Andersson tied the game at 1 with 8:52 left in the first period when he put in a rebound for his eighth goal. It was his first goal in 20 games. Filppula gave Tampa Bay a 1-0 lead 8:40 into the game on the Lightnings second shot. He beat Gustavsson from the high slot on a wrist shot for his 25th goal. He stretched his point streak to 12 games (five goals and 11 assists). Tampa Bay didnt get its first shot until 8:17 into the game.
