DETROIT (AP) - Pavel Datsyuk's goal 3:23 into overtime completed a comeback from a three-goal deficit and gave the Detroit Red Wings a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Nicklas Lidstrom had a goal and an assist, and Jason Williams and Dan Cleary also scored for Detroit. Robert Lang and Mathieu Schneider each added two assists. Dominik Hasek made 18 saves.

Petr Cajanek scored twice and Dallas Drake also had a goal for St. Louis, which lost its sixth straight. Blue goalie Jason Bacashihua stopped 39 shots.

Datsyuk picked up a loose puck in his own zone and skated the length of the ice on a 2-on-1 with Lidstrom and beat Bacashihua with a wrist shot from the right circle.

Cleary tied it at 3, 4:33 into the third period with a power-play goal when he put in the rebound of his own tip attempt.

Drake's short-handed goal 42 seconds into the second period stretched the Blues' lead to 3-0. His slap shot from the top of the left circle beat Hasek high on the glove side. It was Drake's first goal of the season.

But the Red Wings pulled to within one before the middle period ended.

Lidstrom's 5-on-3 power-play goal got Detroit on the board 1:48 into the second period as he ripped a one-time slap shot from the high slot. Williams then converted a spectacular play by Lang into goal with 9:11 left in the period.
