DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings earned another home game.
Damien Brunner scored with 4:50 left in overtime, lifting Detroit to a 3-2 series-evening win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.
Detroit defenseman Jakub Kindl started the winning sequence, passing the puck from behind Detroit's net up the ice to Joakim Andersson. He tried to connect with teammate Gustav Nyquist only to have Hiller poke the puck away.
Brunner, playing in his first NHL season, was in perfect position in front of the net and swatted in the puck to end the game.
Game 5 is Wednesday night in Anaheim and Game 6 is back in the Motor City on Friday night.
During the Red Wings' run of playing in 22 straight postseasons, they have won 11 of 19 series that were tied at 2-2.
Pavel Datsyuk scored a second tying goal for the Red Wings with 6:33 left in regulation. Brendan Smith made it 1-1 early in the third.
Matt Beleskey gave the Ducks their first lead 5:07 into the game and David Steckel put them ahead midway through the third period.
Hiller, who shut out Detroit in Game 3, stopped the first 32 shots and finished with 46 saves. Jimmy Howard had 31 saves for the Red Wings.
Detroit played with a sense of desperation, hoping not to face elimination on the road in Game 5. But it was on the receiving end of aggressive play early in the game.
Beleskey hit Detroit defenseman Kyle Quincey hard on the left side of the net and had enough space to shoot and score off his own rebound to put the Ducks ahead 1-0.
The Red Wings were outshooting Anaheim 27-15 through two periods, but had nothing to show for it.
Smith changed that thanks to a break, ending a 101:18 scoring drought that started after Detroit's 5-4 overtime win in Game 2. Smith's shot from just inside the blue line went off Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin and past Hiller 1:18 into the third period.
Steckel netted a go-ahead goal midway in the third period
The Red Wings, and their fans, thought Johan Franzen scored moments later, but referee Eric Furlatt waved it off and his call was upheld by video review.
Datsyuk gave the red-clad, white-towel waving crowd a reason to cheer when he tied it. He carried the puck up the left side, made a move to the outside that created space between him and defenseman Luca Sbisa, and flicked a wrist shot past Hiller's glove that knocked the water bottle off the top of the net.
Rangers 4, Capitals 3
NEW YORK -- Derek Stepan and Arron Asham both scored tiebreaking goals in the third period for the New York Rangers in a 4-3 victory over the Washington Capitals in Game 3 on Monday night.
The Rangers finally found their offense and got back into their first-round playoff series. New York still trails 2-1 in the Eastern Conference series, with Game 4 here Wednesday night.
Stepan gave the Rangers the lead for good with 6:25 remaining when he deftly tipped in a pass in front from Rick Nash. Asham had put New York in front 3-2 at 2:53, but Jay Beagle got the Capitals even again 4:26 later.
"It was an interesting game," Stepan said. "The flows of it were up and down. Early lead, they tie it. We get another one, they tie it.
"As a team we just stuck together. On the bench everyone had a good feeling."
