Red Wings Vs. Avalanche: Detroit's Chris Osgood Picks Up Career Win No. 400 Following 4-3 Victory Over Colorado

It took three tries and an overtime victory, but Detroit Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood win his 400th career game in the NHL following a 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche. Osgood had lost his previous two attempts to reach the milestone and after Matt Duchene tied the game at three late in the third period, it put the mark in jeopardy. However, defenseman Niklas Kronwall scored a timely power play goal against Peter Budaj at 3:42 in overtime to end the game (Budaj was charged with the tripping penalty, but served by David Jones).

Osgood, who now has 11 career wins over the Avalanche, faced a fury of shots by the Avalanche, but stopped 46 of 49 shots. His 400th win keeps him 10th all-time, and he could surpass Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr (403) later this season. Passing Glenn Hall (407) is also a possibility this season.

The Detroit Red Wings scored all four of their goals on the power play, going 4-for-6 with the advantage on the ice. Colorado's Matt Duchene scored two goals to have 15 on the season, and T.J. Galiardi had the other goal. Goalie Peter Budaj was 26-of-30 in net.

The Colorado Avalanche (19-12-5, 43 points) are losers in their last three and will take to the road for a Thursday game against the Edmonton Oilers. The puck drops at 7:00 p.m MT.
