Lucas Raymond breaks out wicked windmill celly after OT winner

Lucas Raymond to the rescue!



In dramatic fashion, the Detroit Red Wings snatched victory from the jaws of defeat on Monday night at Little Caesars Arena, thanks in large part to a superhuman effort from forward Lucas Raymond.

Not only did Raymond knot the score late in regulation, but he also sniped goaltender Samuel Montembeault in the extra session to give Detroit the extra point that they desperately needed. Had they not picked up at least one point, their playoff hopes would have officially ended. 

The Red Wings found themselves trailing 4-1 to the visiting Canadiens, who were eliminated weeks ago from playoff contention but certainly didn't play like it. However, a pair of goals from J.T. Compher gave the Red Wings life, while Alex DeBrincat stayed hot by cutting Montreal's lead to one with a third period tally of his own.

The Red Wings take on the Canadiens tomorrow night from Bell Centre in the regular season finale; a victory by Detroit coupled with a loss of any kind by the Capitals would give Detroit a playoff berth.
