MONTREAL - Gustav Nyquist scored on a rebound with 28 seconds left in overtime to give the Detroit Red Wings a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens in the first post-Olympic game for both clubs on Wednesday night. The Bell Centre crowd booed as the Canadiens tested the Red Wings' Jimmy Howard only twice in the second period. A team coached by Detroit's Mike Babcock, who was Canada's Olympic bench boss, had not allowed a goal since Lauris Darzins got one at 15:41 of the first period of Canada's 2-1 win over Latvia in the quarter-finals in Sochi. Budaj had been slated to start in goal for Montreal even before Canadian Olympian Carey Price injured his left leg during the team's game-day skate.
