Frans Nielsen scored the only goal in the shootout on Saturday night in a 2-1 win over Ottawa.
Nielsen has 20 game-deciding shootout goals, which is the most all-time in the NHL. It doesn't get him a point to add to his official totals, but Nielsen has the potential to win games for his team when the game goes beyond overtime. Nielsen has not recorded a regulation or extra time point in Detroit's first two games this year. Oct 8 - 12:10 PM
